Why do people live, work, and play differently in different places? How are our realities shaped by local to global influences, both social and environmental? What does this mean in terms of "place" and lived landscapes? This course provides an overview of human geography as a social science, including the "why of where" and human-environment relationships. Topics may include urban, rural, and suburban development, globalization and governance, borders and migration, conservation and development, and different understandings of knowledge, economy, technology, race, gender, and class.
