Urban & Cultural Geography: Space, Society & Culture (Module)

Module description

This module takes a predominantly cultural approach to the study of cities and draws on a range of artistic sources (cinema, literature, art and music for example) to analyse recent urban change in the context of globalisation and post-industrial restructuring. Specific emphasis is placed on how identity categories such as class, gender, race and sexuality inform cultural and urban landscapes and students will be introduced to perspectives such as Marxism, feminism, queer and post-colonial theories.
