Social and Cultural Geography


Digitalization and globalization processes have not only fundamentally changed our everyday lives, but are now impacting on the most intimate fields of our lives - the ways we love, have sex, procreate, understand our bodies, care for and are cared for by each other, etc. In this Bachlor seminar, we engaged with these profound upheavals brought about by the intertwining of the global with the intimate through digitalization. As an alternative to traditional seminar work, we experimented with producing and editing audio features to present content and research findings and make them accessible to a broader audience.

The students investigated the effects of digitalization and globalization on our intimate lives based on a concrete case study (e.g. couchsurfing, sex work, cycle app, activism on Instagram, etc.). They worked with methods of empirical social research and drafted a script and produced a 15-minute audio feature. 

In the spring semester 2021 the seminar was co-chaired by Dr. Elisabeth Militz (Social and Cultural Geography Unit) and Mario Sturny (SRF).
