Culture, Society, and Space
The Culture, Society, and Space group studies various aspects of the production of space and place, and the ways in which regions and landscapes are shaped by socio-economic processes and their corresponding organizations of power, race, gender, and culture. Students wishing to study human geography have the opportunity to focus their studies around specific themes and course clusters in cultural, social, economic, and political geographies.
In addition, the study of social spaces introduces students to various aspects of the history and philosophy of geography, health and public policy, cultural theory and religion, gender studies and feminist theory, race and post-colonialism, and science and technology studies.
