Learning outcomes

After completing this course, students will know legal geographical concepts and theories, and the most topical research questions.

General description

This is a course about current legal geographical theories and discussions. Legal geography will be examined as a branch of human geography, but also by focusing on research carried out in Nordic countries. The course has two parts: during period II, students will read some background articles, and have an exam concerning these. The exam has to be passed before the second part of the course. The second part takes place during period III. The students will take part in a two-day seminar on January 14–15, 2016 as listeners, and they will have a writing task that is based on the seminar and on the previously read articles.
