GEOG 258 – Digital Geographies

Prof. Sarah Elwood

Winter Quarter, 5 Credits, I&S

SLN 14788, Tues/Thurs 1:30 – 3:20 (with assorted lab sections)

Geographic technology is everywhere! Online and in smart phones, we are tweeting about protest movements, becoming mayors on Foursquare, making political art, and getting around town on Uber or Lyft. Our everyday lives are increasingly made through spatial media.

Do you like art? Politics? Technology? Maybe you want to learn how these new tools are used for social justice. If this sounds like you, this is your course!

  • Make digital, web-based maps that you can share!
  • Voice your social justice concerns through digital geography!
  • Probe societal inequalities affected by spatial technology.
  • Expand your aptitude for new technologies — and have the evidence to show to future employers!
  • Understand how your daily lives shape and are shaped by these rapidly emerging technologies.
