This introductory course in the anthropology of space is interdisciplinary and ranges beyond Social Anthropology to include theoretical aspects of cultural geography, psychology, philosophy, art, architectural history and interior design. This diverse content will provide an educational platform upon which you may explore these various overarching disciplines, both to enrich your own knowledge and professional development, and provide the analytical tools to understand how other cultures conceptualise and experience space. Over this 10-week short course we will critically analyse several wide-ranging themes and debates associated with the anthropology of space, place and the built environment, advancing our theoretical, conceptual and subjective understanding. Key topics include:

• the multiple spaces of colonial and indigenous landscapes.• the poetics and phenomenology of domestic space, gendered space, cognitive mapping and environmental perception.• the power of space and use of spatial tactics, proxemics, space and the body, domestic ritual decoration and spatial design.• the making, meaning and materials of the built environment, to liminal, non-spaces’ of globalisation, migration and modernity.

You will be introduced to cross cultural research from various ethnographic regions ranging beyond Europe to India, South America, West Africa, Japan and Australia. We will also include a museum or gallery visit based on material relevant to the course.

 

This is a 10 week course - please note there are 2 bank holidays in May (6th and 27th) when this course will not run, so the overall dates are Mon 29th April - Mon 15th July 2019
