Aims/Description: This research-led module introduces students to the cutting edge of Social and Cultural Geography and dovetails with the Sheffield Geography Department┐s Culture, Space and Difference research group. The module illustrates the diversity and vitality of contemporary social and cultural geography including some of the philosophical concepts and theoretical debates that have shaped the subject. The module aims to deepen and enrich the ways in which students are able to think about geographical issues, through a critical understanding of concepts and approaches that underpin the substance and methods of contemporary human geography. The module team work with students to develop their own `photo essays┐ - which bring the ideas of the module to students┐ experiences from everyday life.
