Module ELECTIONS AND GEOGRAPHY

Module code: GY613
Credits: 10
Semester: 1
Department: GEOGRAPHY
International: Yes
Coordinator: Dr Adrian Kavanagh (GEOGRAPHY)
Overview Overview
 

The module aims to provide an overview of theoretical thinking relating the intersection between electoral studies and geography and then to invite the course participants to apply these concepts/theories to a range of real-world examples, as well as course-based simulations (for the purpose of roleplay).

Having provided a basis for this module by studying the processes associated with different electoral systems in different states, the module will then lead students to critically analyse how geography matters in terms of studies/analyses of electoral behaviour. Students will have the opportunity to apply the ideas/concepts/theories outlined in this module to case studies of recent/ongoing events relating to elections/election campaigning, both in the context of the Republic of Ireland and international politics (for example, the United States of America and the United Kingdom).
