GEG2PPP

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Spaces and places are produced through the interaction of multiple forces: state ambitions, private enterprise, built environment and its regulation, humans, non-human species and nature. In this subject, students will examine how interacting flows of power shape our urban and regional spaces and places over time, and their implications for social justice. Students will also reflect upon their relationship with creating and representing spaces and places. Scholarly articles, creative arts, popular media and practical examples will inform students' understanding of the issues. Methods will include international and cross cultural case studies.
