Health, Lifestyles & Cities (Module)

Module description

This module examines the theoretical debates concerning the study of health within geography and the interrelationships between health and the built form of cities. Students will critically assess current public health policies and the practices involved in governing unhealthy lifestyles and will evaluate how spatial and social differences between and within cities condition the problematisation of lifestyles. The modules aims to provide an understanding of the incorporation of health within the remit of an increasing array of governmental and non-governmental actors.
