20 Credits AUTUMN

Aims/Description: This module explores how a geographical approach helps us to analyse events such as controversial election results, divisive immigration policies, and contentious social activism. The two key concepts of democracy and citizenship are used to engage with contemporary debates and theories to draw out the links between geography, policy and society, and the ways in which these are responded to by citizens, communities, civil society, and political parties. Particular attention is paid to the ways in which these interactions are played out across and through multiple scales, from the global to our everyday lives.
