GEOG 110 - Cultural Geography


Cultural differences, and ways of understanding cultural difference, in a global context are examined. After an introduction to key moments in the recent history of the discipline (Cultural Geography), students develop a geographical perspective on: (1) the relationship between culture and politics; (2) the relationship between culture and economic development; and (3) the relationship between culture and nature. Students explore these themes through lecture and discussion copiously illustrated with maps, slides, and videos; short writing projects; the analysis of maps and visual representations of cultural difference; and the reading of specialized materials.
