Just Futures and their Geographies

This module examines some of the significant challenges facing contemporary society through a justice lens. It introduces theories and concepts of justice in and beyond geography including just transitions, more than human and multi-species justice, environmental justice, social justice, economic justice, futures, digital justice and works these concepts through a series of empirical case studies including the food system, digital geographies, and migration. In doing so, the module crosses a number of sub-disciplinary fields of human geography.

Landscape, Culture and Politics

The module brings together cultural and political geography to examine the connections of politics, culture and landscape. The focus is on England, where landscape has long been central to questions of power and identity, whether at local, regional, national, international or imperial scales. Relations of power shape landscapes, and the identities of those who inhabit them and move through them. From the agricultural and industrial ‘revolutions’ and the empire of trade in the 18th century, down to the political and cultural upheavals of the 21st century, landscape has played a key role in shaping national identity, in England as elsewhere.

The module traces the history of landscape, culture and politics in England, and shows how legacies of the past shape debates today. From political disputes over the UK’s relationship to Europe, to anxieties over our relationship to land and environment, to the ways in which legacies of empire and slavery inform landscape and recast English identity, the module shows how cultural, historical and political geography helps to make sense of a transforming world.
