Description
:

Examination of conflicts from around the world arising from such issues as race, gender, sexuality, colonialism, neo-colonialism, gentrification, globalization, and environmental protection as they manifest themselves in contestations over space. Focus on how these political struggles over space—who owns it, who controls it, who defines it, how it's organized, what purpose it serves, etc.—are linked to social, cultural, and economic processes. Using case studies, the variety of ways that space is contested and how space is central to political conflict are explored.

Proposal Changes:

<no text provided>

History Information:

Sent back to division 10-6-05.  CC would like confirmation that the course meet the requirements for SocS SeEd Licensure.

Kuechle confirmed that course will satisfy SocS SeEd Licensure 10-10-05.

Assessment
and Goals:

Assessment:
Students will be assessed through participation in class discussion, presentations on the readings, 3-4 short papers, and a longer (10- to 15-page) research paper.
Goals:
To teach students that space is often a central point of contestation in socio-political conflicts around the world and that viewing such conflicts from a geographical perspective adds to our understanding of how people negotiate and actively shape political, economic, and cultural processes from a variety of social positions and with varying degrees of access to social, economic, and political power.

Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THIS COURSE IS DESIGNED TO FULFILL THREE MAIN CURRICULAR OBJECTIVES. FIRST, IT WILL EXPAND UMM'S GEOGRAPHY OFFERINGS BY ADDING A SECOND COURSE. THIS WILL BE THE FIRST NEW GEOGRAPHY COURSE IN AT LEAST SIX YEARS. SECOND, IT SEEKS TO COMPLEMENT OTHER SOCIAL SCIENCE COURSES WHICH STUDENTS MAY HAVE TAKEN IN SOCIOLOGY, POLITICAL SCIENCE, HISTORY, ECONOMICS, AND ANTHROPOLOGY, BY PROVIDING A SPATIAL PERSPECTIVE TO ISSUES ASSOCIATED WITH THOSE DISCIPLINES. THIRD, THE COURSE IS DESIGNED TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS FOR SOCIAL SCIENCE SECONDARY EDUCATION LICENSURE.
