Urban Political Geography: Research Seminar

Covers both classic and contemporary theoretical debates and research on the relation between power, place, and the local scale. Considers both conventional sites (e.g., the local state) as well as new forms and locations of city politics (e.g., sexuality and the body).

Class description

Sexuality & Space will be the topic of this year's seminar. We will read a series of research monographs in relation to current debates and trends in queer theory and critical geography. Non-geographers welcome.
