GEOG4067 Seminar in Social Justice and the City (3 units)
It starts with interrogating some concepts related to the ways city has developed over time. The general discussion is complemented by a brief discussion of the Hong Kong situation. It then joins the debate whether spatial justice exists ontologically different from social justice. It is in the interest of the course to develop a more dialectical understanding between social and spatial processes. A list of the social justice issues in the city is then enumerated. The method and techniques of handling these issues and, therefore, form the background for students to practise social justice in the field. These practice experiences are then interrogated in the class with the objective of formulating, more theoretically, a possible urban utopia that is socially just.
