The lecture course will introduce the module and introduce the theme of ‘cities’ in social geography. Subsequent lectures take students on a geographical tour of three world cities - Liverpool, New York and Auckland – spanning Europe, America and Oceania; in the northern and southern hemisphere.
The lectures will explore these cities to introduce several major themes in social geography including
1) relations between the global and local;
2) tourism, heritage and memory,
3) sustainability and the environment.
The seminar course supports the lecture course by enabling students to ‘travel’ to three city locations and explore, in-depth, social geographies using a range of secondary resources including audio-visual, textual media and academic and popular resources.
