AGST Module 1 (Environmental policy & Rural development studies) will hold a series of special lectures titled “Spatial Thinking in Social Sciences
Perspectives on Rural-Urban / Local-Global Dichotomies” from October 11 to 21, 2016.
In this course, we critically engage with the spatial turn in social sciences developing since the 1970s. Building upon a brief introduction into the return of spatial thinking in the social sciences, we will discuss three themes in relation to the visual culture: the construction of the rural (in relation to the urban), our understanding of the local (in relation to the global), and re-invention of the nature (in relation to culture, or society).
