PPR486 Interrogating Political and Religious Spaces
Examining the relationship between space, knowledge and power is vital for understanding political and religious life. Space isn't just a blank canvas or empty container on or in which the important things of life happen. It is productive and dynamic; it has an impact on relationships and events, and is shaped and influenced by them. The module focuses on the following topics.
This module is designed to appeal to both politics and religious studies students. Theories and methods for examining political and religious spaces will be introduced as well as a range of case studies. The module will provide resources to think spatially about politics and/or religion that can be applied in essays and dissertations.
