Expanded Course Description
Place, territory, culture, and identity are vitally important components of world affairs. This course integrates these and other geographic themes to help students understand and appreciate the tensions and opportunities that both unite and divide societies throughout the world. A case study approach helps learners critically examine and analyze some of the ways geographic context reflects and shapes these cultural and social processes.
In addition to participating in class discussions that center on questions about society and space from a broad-based global perspective, students are asked to become involved in 'on the ground' research projects that investigate why culture change occurs at different scales on earth ranging from local to global. As a Group-satisfying Social Science class, Society, Culture, and Place broadens students' understanding of their own place in the larger world as well as appreciate their relationship to peoples, cultures, and societies beyond the walls of the university.
