Course: HUMA 610. Space, Place and Geography: Mental Mapping (3)
This course examines how the conceptualization of space and place have contributed to a variety of different cultural understandings of the human condition. The course looks at the conceptions underlying the creation and representation of space and the role of landscape in determining the human condition. The course attempts to assess why differing conceptions of space have led to changes and conflicts in and between societies, whether through internal diachronic change or through contact between different cultures.
