HIST-2407B General Geography

The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the fields of study, the theoretical and methodological tools and the possibilities offered by Geography to understand social phenomena. This objective covers a wide spectrum that includes the acknowledgement of themes derived from the literal sense of the term Geography (in Greek, write or describe earth), to the reflection on the society´s perception and management of the space where they belong. The course combines the masterly exhibition with the discussion of readings assigned for each class. During sessions assigned to workshops, final progress and works presented on topics associated with field visits are discussed.
