Geography 357: Introduction to Social Geography

Fall 2011 Term 1 
MWF 10:00, Geog 200 

Instructor: Geraldine Pratt
Office: 140D
Office Hours: M 11-1; W 11 - 12

This course focuses on the relationship between individuals, social groups and urban space. We will consider how different aspects of social identities (such as gender, age, class, ethnicity and sexuality) are intertwined with the places in which we live, and how environments both reflect and shape particular ways of life. We investigate cities as contradictory sites of both cosmopolitan hope and social exclusion. The course will combine lectures with class discussion. There are no prerequisites.
