ARCH-870C Critical Geography and Techniques of Representation

3 Credits

This course investigates how spatial relationships affect a range of subject areas, from the way physical structures and natural conditions affect populations, to the way populations in turn shape physical spaces. Students will study the theoretical work of critical geography through texts by Denis Cosgrove and others, as well as the work of the Frankfurt School, which includes the work of Walter Benjamin. Students will develop a mapping project that researches contemporary relations between the social and spatial.
