GSP 170 - Human Geography


Description: Human Geography offers students an introduction to the global distribution of human characteristics through the theoretical lens of critical geography. We examine key concepts of the discipline such as place, space, territory, scale, and uneven development. These concepts are grounded in contemporary empirical examples of globalization, uneven development, conflict, migration, gentrification, segregation, and climate change. Topics will include population, cultural, agricultural, industrial, economic, political, urban, linguistic and religious geographies. The character, distribution, and origin of these geographies will be examined along with their relationship to each other and the physical environment. Letter grade only.
