Full UC Title: ANTHROPOGEOGRAPHY II: GEOGRAPHIES OF DIFFERENCES 
Transcript Title: ANTHROPOGEOGRAPHY 
UC QTR Units - Division: 5.5 - Upper Division 
Course Description: The module deepens the question of how relationships between space and society can be conceptualized. The focus is on social-theoretical approaches that focus on questions of inequalities, power, identity, and representations. The further development of relevant theories, their basic statements and their significance for social processes are explained using the example of empirical cases. In this context, complex topics of socio-spatial research, such as development, mobility, and migration, are examined more closely. The contents are developed independently or in groups. There are exercises for literature research, text analysis, design of homework, and research papers. At the end of the class, students have a basic understanding of social theoretical approaches. Using these conceptual approaches, they can systematically open up complex questions about unequal power structures and their socio-spatial characteristics. They are more familiar with the scientific discourse of individual subareas of anthropogeography and can relate to sociopolitical strategies. They are proficient in independently researching information on complex topics based on scientific literature and are able to communicate insights and correlations in accordance with scientific standards.
