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.
Aims: 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.
Method: 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. Preparatory reading, regular attendance and active participation in class discussions is accounted for in grading.

Assessment and permitted materials

Students will have different options to gain credits: active participation in class discussions (up to 2 credits per unit), short papers in preparation (up to 4 credits each), summary of discussion (up to 4 credits each), summary comparative papers (up to 8 credits each), final written exam (up to 48 credits).

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Regular attendance, minimum 50 credits, minimum 30 credits for active participation and preparatory papers.
