“Space is big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the drug store, but that’s just peanuts to space.”
In this quote, Douglas Adams is actually talking about outer space, but have you ever considered that space (here on earth, your direct surrounding, your local supermarket) can be something else than just ‘geographical’?
This course is dedicated to this other geography, namely cultural geography. Introducing you to important ideas and influential thinkers of the discipline, we will explore places, spaces and locales that are more than just a location. Topics include: How to map a piece of fiction, parties as expressive spaces of youth culture, religion and geography, the architecture in and of your mind and the (culturally geographical) body in photography.
This course is designed to connect and intertwine theory with practice which is why there are mandatory field trips, which you have to attend. To successfully pass this course, you will have to hand in a portfolio which ‘maps’ your progress and displays your skills of analysing a text from a cultural geography point of view.
A reader will be made available to you in the copy shop below the Food Fakultät.
