Research Seminar: Internal Spatial Structure of Cities

Attempts to bring together two major theoretical streams that have been challenging conventional ways of understanding urban geography.

Class description

This graduate course reflects geographers' burgeoning interest in the body and a social phenomenon. We will use it to explore a series of theoretical questions about the a.) the body as a political, cultural, economic space and b) how the body is (not) mapped onto places in political, cultural and economic ways.

Assessment will be based on a term paper on the topic of your choice, and class participation. The class will be run in a complete seminar format.
