Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Course outline is designed to the specific needs of MA students in geography with specialisation in regional development. However, it is open to students of all study programs interested in theoretical and conceptual approaches developed to grasp inequality dynamics in space. Discussions will centre on theories and concepts suited for analysis at the regional scale, i.e. at a middle spatial range.

Assessment and permitted materials

Students will have three different options to gain credits: final written examination, active participation in class discussions, short papers in preparation.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Students are able to review the most important approaches developed over the last century to analyse, understand and govern the dynamics of spatial (regional) inequality processes, can place them in historical context and are able to distinguish with respect to main argumentation lines.

Examination topics

The course is designed as a 2-hours weekly lecture. To foster active reflection on the empirical, theoretical and conceptual material presented, at least one third of course time will be devoted to focused discussions. Regular attendance and active participation in class discussions is accounted for in grading.
