Tutorials: MW 12,1*
SS 1070
Considers the role of planning in shaping the urban landscape through historical and contemporary examples that illustrate the interplay of modernist and post-modernist approaches to city building.

GGR300H1F – Special Topics: Infrastructure M. Siemiatycki L0101:TR 12-2  SS 2127
Infrastructure is the term that describes the transportation systems, sewers, pipes, and power lines that provide urban dwellers with necessary public services. In recent years, billions of dollars have been invested in infrastructure worldwide, with the potential to transform cities and regions. This course introduces key topics in the geography and planning of infrastructure. Students will learn about the spatial distribution of infrastructure investments globally, the methods and techniques for deciding which projects to build, the ways that infrastructure is paid for, and the impacts that specific types of projects have on the social, environmental and economic vitality of cities.

Tutorials: MW 2, 3*
SS 1071
A comprehensive examination of the greenhouse warming problem, beginning with economic, carbon cycle, and climate model projections; impacts on and adaptive responses of agriculture, forests, fisheries, and water resources; abatement options; technical and institutional issues.

Course Syllabus GGR314H1F
GGR329H1S – The Global Food System A. Weiler L0101: MW 2-4 SS 2127
Explores the changing global geographies of food by tracing international movements of food through both mainstream and ‘alternative’ supply chains. The implications for sustainability, food security, community autonomy and health are investigated.
-Recommended Preparation: 8.0 FCE’s including 1.0 FCE in Geography (SOC SCI/BR=3)
-Distribution Requirement Status: Social Science

GGR339H1F – Urban Geography, Planning and Political Processes M. Spinks L0101: TR 6-8 SS 2110
Investigates North American urban political geography, exploring conflicts over immigration, environment, gentrification, homelessness, labour market restructuring, ‘race’ and racism, urban sprawl, nature and environment, gender, sexuality, security, and segregation. Explores competing visions of city life and claims on urban space. The course investigates how these struggles connect to economic, social and environmental politics at larger spatial scales, and considers different theoretical frameworks that geographers have developed to make sense of both the persistence of old problems and the emergence of new ones.
-Recommended Preparation: 8.0 FCE’s including GGR124H1, GGR246H1/GGR254H1

GGR360H1S – Culture, History, and Landscape A. Merrill L0101: TR 10-12 SS 1070
The history of approaches to the idea of landscape. A consideration of the origins and uses of the term in geographical inquiry will be followed by a series of case studies, global in scope, from the Early Modern period to the present. Emphasis will be placed on the representational and lived aspects of landscapes, as well as struggles over their definition, interpretation, and use.

Foci will include the importance of knowledge and innovation in the process of economic development, social and economic polarization at multiple spatial scales, planning interventions to address these polarities, and strategies and tactics in the promotion of more sustainable urban-centred regional economies.

-Recommended Preparation: 8.0 FCE’s including 2.0 FCE’s in Geography (SOC SCI/BR=3). A statistics course (GGR270H1 or other) would be an asset.
