|Subject Overview:|| |
Human mobility is an increasingly common feature of modernity. It is also an intrinsically spatial phenomenon of abiding interest to geographers. This subject examines a number of examples of human mobility in the contemporary world including refugee movements, temporary worker migration, permanent resettlement, diasporic and 'nomadic' communities and tourism. The subject also introduces students to a number of theoretical issues relevant to contemporary thinking about mobility in the modern world including globalisation and the nation-state, the social construction of difference, mobility and a sense of place, migration and citizenship, geographies of exclusion and the commodification of difference.
|Assessment:||Written work totalling 4000 words comprising a 3000-word essay 65% (due at the end of week 9), a 1000-word tutorial paper 25% (due during semester) and a 10-minute tutorial presentation 10%.|
