GEOG379 Special Topic in Human Geography

Topics of current interest in human geography; tutorials, field and practical work as required.

Health and wellbeing appears to be everywhere: public health campaigns on billboards, the odd advertisement on TV or it simply may be a chat with your class mates about how you feel today. Health and wellbeing is multifaceted, complex and not always easy to come to terms with.
GEOG 379 explores the roles that physical and social environments play for inequalities in health and wellbeing. It looks across scales and spaces to explore concepts and debates on social justice.
