wreckofthehope Posted July 27, 2010 Share Posted July 27, 2010 Hi Geography peeps, I'm actually applying for a PhD in English Literature, but my area of specialization is representations of space, place and environment in literature. Ideally, I'd like to be able to take something like a PhD minor in Geography, which seems do-able at a number of places... however, the only schools I've really found that seem to be offering actual courses in exactly the kind of geography I'm interested in are the University of Toronto and the University of Washington*. Can anyone suggest other schools with strengths in the are of Cultural Geography, and in particular spatial theory, Behavioural Geography, and landscape studies/cultural landscapes stuff? *for example, this course at Washington: Ecoscapes: Nature, Culture, and Place Relationship between nature, culture, and place as the heart of geographic inquiry. Examines how perceptions of nature are influenced by changing political-economic, cultural, and scientific practices. Uses cultural studies of ecological science as a primary method of analysis. (although that's an undergrad' course, but you get the idea) and these at Toronto:"Space, Power and Geography", "Cultural and Critical Geographies".
