Human Geo Summer

Fieldwork the study of phenomena by visiting places and observing how people interact with and there by change those places
Human Geography A study focused on how people make places, how we organize space and society, how we interact with each other in places and across space, and how we make sense of others and our selves in our localities, regions and the world.
Globalization Set of processes that are increasing interactions, deepening relationships, and accelerating interdependence across national boarders.
Spatial Arrangement of places and phenomena, how they are laid out, organized, arranged on Earth and how they appear on the landscape. Mapping spacial distribution can be the first step to understanding it.
Medical Geography The study of health and disease within a geographic context and from a geographical perspective. Among other things, medical geography looks at sources, diffusion routes and distributions of diseases.
Epidemic A regional outbreak of disease.
Spatial Perspective Observing variations in geographic phenomena across space.
Space Social relations stretched out.
Sense of Place A state of mind derived through the infusion of a place with meaning and emotion by remembering important events that occurred in that place or by labeling a place with a certain character.
Accessibility The degree of ease with which it is possible to reach a certain location from other locations. Accessibility varies from place to place and person to person.
Spatial Interaction The degree of flow of people, ideas, and goods among places.
Activity Spaces Places we travel to routinely in our rounds of daily activity.
Perceptual Regions A region that only exists as a conceptualization or an idea and not as a physically demarcated entity. For example in the United States, "the South" and "the Mid-Atlantic Region" are perceptual regions.
Culture The sum total of the knowledge, attitudes and habitual behaviors patterns shared and transmitted by members of a society.
