Systematic Human Geography Courses

GEOG-4403(3) URBAN LAND USE DEVELOPMENTAL PROCESSES (S3) An investigation of the processes by which urban development occurs and a critical appraisal of resultant urban forms. Some consideration will be given to the evaluation of relevant theory and to the nature and effect of planning controls on urban form. This course alternates with GEOG-4404(3).
Restrictions: Honours Form Required.
Prerequisite: GEOG-2414(3), or GEOG-2415(3).

GEOG-4404(3) FIELD RESEARCH IN URBAN GEOGRAPHY (S3) This course investigates, examines and appraises the major varieties of primary and secondary materials available for the study of urban areas. Particular emphasis will be placed on the acquisition and evaluation of local material, and the course will therfore call for students to be engaged in field research. This course alternates with GEOG-4403(3).
Restrictions: Honours Form Required.
Prerequisite: GEOG-2414(3), or GEOG-2415(3).

GEOG-4409(3) ARCHITECTURE AND CITY PLANNING (Le3) This course explores the relationships between architecture and city form, function, and planning in the social and historical context of the 20th century. Planning theory and practice is more specialized and separated from architectural theory. Yet, architecture is an important visual and functional impact on the urban form of the city and its planning. The major architectural schools (e.g., Art Nouveau, Bauhaus, International Style) and the cultural avant-garde trends (e.g., Futurism, Surrealism, Situationism) and their relatinship to and impact on city planning are surveyed.

GEOG-4415(3) POWER, KNOWLEDGE, GEOGRAPHY (S3) This course examines the power of geographical ideas in shaping social values and understandings. Seminars focus on analyzing spatial formations of various historical and contemporary topics such as colonialism, nationalism, warfare, popular culture, science, racism, surveillance, the body, genocide, the climate crisis, and fundamentalism. Students are asked to consider how 'the production of space' accompanies and influences the production of knowledge, revealing connections between geography and power.
Experimental Course: This course is offered on a trial basis to gauge interest in the topic. Students who successfully complete this course receive credit as indicated.
Prerequisite: GEOG-2408 or GEOG-2416 or GEOG-3330 or GEOG-3415 or permission of the instructor.

GEOG-4441(3) ADVANCED STUDIES IN ENVIRONMENTAL PERCEPTION (S3) This course will consist of seminars examining selected topics relating to perceptions of physical and cultural environments. It will review and evaluate methods employed by geographers in the field of environmental perception. Whenever possible, students will be encouraged to apply these methods to local problems in natural hazards, mental mapping, and landscape aesthetics. This course will be of interest to students with an orientation to either physical or cultural geography.
Restrictions: Honours Form Required.
Prerequisite: GEOG-2408(3)

GEOG-4443(3) ADVANCED TOURISM & RECREATION GEOGRAPHY (S3) This course is based on a selection of advanced readings on topics and problems dealing with recreational and tourism behavior, the supply and demand for different types of recreational space and tourism facilities, and issues of sustainability. A research project may be required of each student. Additional in-depth work is required to receive credit at the 4000-level.
Prerequisite: GEOG-2412(3), or GEOG-3411(3), or permission of the instructor.
Restrictions: Students may not hold credit for this course and GEOG-3443 I GEOG-4407.

Seminars focus on analyzing spatial formations of various historical and contemporary topics such as colonialism, nationalism, warfare, popular culture, science, racism, surveillance, the body, genocide, the climate crisis, and fundamentalism. Students are asked to consider how 'the production of space' accompanies and influences the production of knowledge, revealing connections between geography and power.

Discussion begins by outlining change, complexity, uncertainty and conflicts associated with primary and derived resources, including those contributing to climate change. Important technological innovations and policy developments designed to address these challenges are contemplated. Topics include corporate social responsibility policies, public-private initiatives, community-based resource management, adaptive management, and social learning through public participation.
