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.
