Module assignments


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.
