SOC 278 - Social Geography of Contemporary Cultures
Social Geography of Contemporary Cultures
The course reexamines the relationship of geography and social life, focusing on the ways place and space matter both in everyday cultural practices and in contemporary political issues, such as environmentalism, homelessness, and migration. Special attention is paid to globalization and new technologies for the way these are changing work, leisure, family, identity, and embodiment. New social spaces will be treated such as those created within urban/suburban multicultures, mass media, and cybercultures.
