The course will examine the importance of space, place and the environment in social life. Drawing from health, medical and socio-cultural geographies, architectural, feminist, and anti-oppression theories/film/research, as well as in-person spatial analysis of local geographies, we will identify and assess how 'place matter' physical culture, kinesiology, and health. We will examine how experiences and representations of space and place are mediated by systemic oppressions and differences in power relations. To do this, we will explore how social injustice, settler-colonial relations, environmental racism, consumption and the Anthropocence's impact physical culture, sport, and health. We will interrogate how our practices in sport, physical culture and kinesiology have profound implications for the health and ecological geographies of humans, ‘more-than-human’ species, ecosystems, and all life on earth. The course takes a social and environmental justice and anti-oppressive approach towards interrogating historical, political, local and global disparities in the governance of space, place and Land. We will consider the possibilities for enacting democratic, caring, and responsible ethical relations to enact preferred futures where ecocentric, equity-based, and sustainable geographies and environment flourish.
