Beating the Bounds: Defining and Mapping Boundaries

Description

Finding out about the lives of people who lived before us makes most sense when presented within the actual boundaries that existed in their time. These are sometimes defined by physical features in the landscape like walls or ditches, but do not have to be. This tutorial focuses on the changing boundaries of Great Britain and shows how these geographies can be used to help us understand and find people in the past.

Newcastle City Centre from above, 1978

Description

Aerial view of Newcastle City Centre showing Northumberland Street and the surrounding area, June 1978 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/4/CN11182LL). Tyne & Wear Archives presents a series of colour aerial photographs of Newcastle upon Tyne. These images were captured by the Newcastle-based photographic firm Turners Ltd during the mid to late 1970s. At first glance, some of these images give the impression that the Newcastle landscape hasn't changed much in 40 years. Look more closely, though, and some of the differences between then and now will reveal themselves - see how many you can spot.

International Relations (MIT)

Description

This graduate course is divided intothree parts. Together they are intended to provide theoretical, empirical, and policy perspectives on source and consequences of globalization, focusing on emergent structures and processes, and on the implications of flows of goods and services across national boundaries - with special attention to the issue of migration, on the assumption that people matter and matter a lot. An important concern addressed pertains to the dilemmas of international policies that are shaped by the macro-level consequences of micro-level behavior.
