Welcome to: SGEM22 Human Geography: Landscape and Political Ecology, 7.5 credits
The course is taught in the first term of the Master's Programme in Human Geography (120 credits) and is also offered as a freestanding course.
The course offers advanced insights to landscape geography and actively combines this with critical ways of thinking about the environment, environmental problems and solutions within the field of political ecology. Landscape and political ecology thereby weaves together a number of critical issues concerning the ways in which the environment is transformed.
Recognising that uneven processes of change shape the social and cultural geographic development of places and landscapes, the course wants to examine the tensions and power relations that are at play on different scales in the intersection between nature, society, and politics.
