About

The focus of our M.A. programme “Human Geography: Globalisation, Media, and Culture” lies on the re-negotiation of the (power) relation between space, society, and culture in the current era of late post-modern globalisation. Specific emphasis is on the questions: How are these new or transformed relations medially conveyed? Which socio-cultural challenges are raised by this? How can these problems be addressed politically?

Media-sensitive cultural geography is a key in times when digital technologies permeate all spheres of our life and substantially change our communication and “geo-positioning” in the world. Communication equipment continues to be miniaturised and mobilised. Furthermore, we are experiencing a huge surge in mapping and geo-coded positioning. Thus, a new form of geographical awareness is arising, meaning we are set out on an entirely renewed interest in space, regions and places. The geographical media content of the programme is, therefore, devoted to analysing newly arranged global geographies.... [-]
