Critical Perspectives on space and place: theory and practice - GEOP201

Ways of knowing about space and place are directly connected to research methodologies and practices. This unit introduces students to theoretical perspectives on human geography and associated research approaches. It will provide an overview of theoretical developments and key schools of thought in human geography (e.g. feminist geographies and post-colonial geographies) as well as practical experience in research design and data collection. Through seminars, group work and field trips, the unit will introduce different paradigms and theories in human geography, explain their relevance for research design and methodology and provide introductory training for using a variety of methods such as surveys, interviews, focus groups and participant observation as well as visual and digital methods.
