Maynooth University Department of Geography

About the course

This new ‘MA in Geography: Spatial Justice’ responds to Irish President Michael D. Higgins’ call to attend to the ‘serious contradictions and obstacles to a genuinely inclusive citizenship’ resulting from recent social and environmental crises. In this course, students will consider pressing global, European and Irish issues through the lens of spatial justice. In addition to learning how to understand, document and map forms of discrimination, violence and displacement at different scales, students will learn how citizens and groups challenge historical legacies and existing structural injustices, and seek more equitable alternatives. Students will gain insights into ‘third spaces’, grassroots movements, and forms of solidarity that may significantly lead to re-thinking current inhabitants’ rights to the city, shared resources, and the right to living in healthy places in Ireland. Through unique public engagement opportunities with civil society partners and cutting-edge research modules, students will gain training in ethical, collaborative and responsible research practices; fieldwork; and working with civil society, community-based, NGO, cultural and government partners. For the full time programme (MHN66), please go to https://www.maynoothuniversity.ie/geography/our-courses/ma-geography-spatial-justice.
