LIBA1001 Explorations: Space and Place
From Sarah Woodcock on March 3rd, 2020
On this module we will examine interdisciplinary approaches to ideas of space and place. Thinking about these two mutually-informed concepts, this module will enable students to develop an understanding of the ways in which we interact with the world that surrounds us on various scales, moving from the private places of home, through the public place of the city, to the open space of the environment. Throughout, students will be encouraged to think creatively and critically about the ways in which ideas of space and place intersect with broader discourses of individual, cultural and political identities and inform ongoing debates about privacy and surveillance, accessibility, globalisation, transportation, environmental crises, resource management and protest movements. As the module progresses, students will be encouraged to develop and pursue individual applications of their understanding of the central concepts of space and place by drawing together their interdisciplinary studies in other subject areas.
