Course Instructor Day & Time
GGR112H1F – Geographies of Globalization, Development & Inequality L. Frederiksen L0101: MW 10-12 (+tutorials)
Throughout this course, we apply a geographical approach to the study of economic globalization, international development, and global inequalities. We proceed from the insight that all accounts of globalization, development, and inequality are situated in historically specific and socially differentiated assumptions about people and places in the world. We extend this insight to examine a range of responses to globalization and influential theories of development. We give particular attention to processes that restructure the relationships among states, markets, households, and environments. By the end of the course, students should have at least a basic account of the ways globalization and development processes operate to perpetuate uneven geographical landscapes characterized by extreme social and economic polarization.

GGR217H1S – Urban Landscapes and Planning T. Bost L0101: MW 10-12 (+tutorials)
 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. Traces the origins, competing rationalities and lingering effects of planning in the production of urban space.  Broaches possibilities for engaging planning critically to address challenges of social and environmental justice in cities today.

GGR246H1F – Geography of Canada B. Butler L0101: MW 6-8 (+ tutorials)
In this course we will examine the geography of and idea of Canada. Our study of different regions is organized by themes that will assist us in discussing nation and state.

GGR339H1S – Urban Geography, Planning and Political Processes A. Zendel L0101: MW 2-4
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.
