GEOG 80.09 Humanitarian Emergencies and Geographic Methods

Over 134 million people worldwide are affected by humanitarian emergencies. Geographic methods (e.g. spatial statistics, remote sensing, and mapping) answer questions about the role of place in humanitarian emergencies. We will 1) investigate the use of spatial data and 2) identify challenges that must be addressed to generate technically rigorous and ethical conclusions in humanitarian environments. Critical theory and empirical case studies will inform our discussions. No prior experience with geographical information systems is required.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
