10 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: Fieldwork plays a fundamental role within the geographical tradition and is widely regarded as an essential part of degree-level Human Geography. In this module, sustained fieldwork, with classroom time before and after for preparation, analysis and reflection, is a vehicle both for bringing the subject alive, and also for developing academic and transferable skills and substantive knowledge, ranging from curiosity-driven and deep learning, to the enhancement of skills and competences through independent research that will enhance students' employability. The key themes of this field module include: social and spatial inequalities; island economies; social movements and activism; EU regional policy; social and territorial cohesion; immigration; refugee crisis; European identity.
