1. At the beginning of each chapter a list of the key questions that will be addressed.
2. Each time a new important concept is introduced, it is outlined in bold.
3. To enhance your understanding ?ve types of additional material are included in boxes.
2. Course Description
There is a continuous two-way process, a sociospatial dialectic, in which people create and modify urban spaces while at the same time being conditioned in various ways by the spaces in which they live and work. Then, space cannot be regarded simply as a neutral medium in which social, economic and political processes are expressed. In this course, the changing context of urban social geography, a highly diverse enterprise, both in terms of its subject matter and the diversity of methodological approaches used will be discussed.
