1.07.0881 Contested Spaces (Social Geography, Lehrsprache Englisch) Thursday: 14:00 - 16:00, weekly (from 22/10/20)

Description:
Geography is the study of the world around us. At its heart, it is a discipline which takes ‘space’ and place (see the course ‘Place, Identity and Society) seriously. Our lives do not happen outside of a geographical - spatial - context. Yet spaces around us - the university, city, square parks and gardens, streets, our house, the lecture room, the pub or the café - are full of contestations as different people occupy and use space. The contestation of space is a central concern of Social Geography. Accordingly, this course provides a critical introduction to Social Geography, focusing on power-filled engagements between people and the spaces around us. The course will introduce the notion of ‘contestation’ before working through 10+ spaces where geographical contestation occurs and where power shapes space and the way people are able or unable to occupy it or use it. The course allows student to reflect on the range of everyday spaces that are sites of conflict and control, and to be able to explain why geography matters to making sense of those contestations. The course is designed to encourage students to become actively involved in their learning - to engage with a set of readings and activities - and to think critically about how the world around them is shaped by spaces of contestation.

Description:
The course focuses on data extraction and machine learning for image and text classification using Python and TensorFlow (https://www. tensorflow.org/). After learning the basic programming skills of Python, students practice data collection via the Twitter API and classify the collected data using machine learning. At the end of the course, students will be familiar with Python and TensorFlow to use this knowledge for their own further research. The course is held in English. Previous programming knowledge is not required. The seminar is designed for students at various levels with a general interest in digitalization and computational social science.

1.07.088 Place, Identity and Society (Social Geography, Lehrsprache Englisch) Thursday: 12:00 - 14:00, weekly (from 22/10/20)

Description:
Our lives do not happen outside of a geographical context. Our everyday existence happens in places - in the city where we live, the street, our house, the lecture room, the pub or the café. This course provides a critical introduction to Social Geography, focusing on the relations between place, identity and society. Geography - or place - as this course will reveal, matters to how our identities are understood and our position in society at large. Our identities come to define how we may belong in place, or may be situated as different, and ‘out of place’. Our identities - and where they play out - can be trivial, or they can be a matter of life and death. The course will cover a range of key concepts, current debates and contemporary issues in Social Geography. The course outlines current geographical thinking about social geographies of place, scale, identity and power. It will also provide a series of ‘lenses’ for thinking about these themes through representations; practices; mobility; struggles and hope for the future. Indeed, drawing examples from around the world and at a variety of geographical scales, the module explores the contested nature of our social world and conflicting meanings of our place within it.

Description:
The main aim of this course is to provide insights about democracy studies. Along with the definitions of democracy and democratization, how the literature has been evolving and where it has been headed are main issues that will be covered in this course. After providing the necessary conceptual tools, the actual cases under the banner of waves of democratization will be evaluated. This course aims to compare and contrast the following (1) various conceptualizations democracy and democratization (2) different paths towards democracy. In order to do this, the course is designed in themes that are embedded in a wider framework of theoretical analyses of democracy as well as relevant case studies from several countries.

10.11.257 Psychology for Pedagogues Monday: 14:00 - 16:00, weekly (from 19/10/20)

Description:
What are we going to learn initially and how can we use this knowledge in future? We will be looking at developmental psychology as background knowledge relevant to any individual we wish to understand better: How do children with their individual biological traits such as temperament develop within the social psychological framework of family or home care situation. What resulting motivational state is the individual likely to have towards (un)interesting tasks on the basis of this life history? And what can we do with this knowledge (pedagogical psychology)? (Course language is obviously English) What are we going to learn initially and how can we use this knowledge in future?
