ANSO 241 The City


In this course, we will explore how cities are made, experienced, changed, and contested. We will examine urban processes in an effort to better understand how urban places shape people’s lives and how people shape urban places. We will study how injustices are reproduced and challenged, particularly as they relate to issues of urban development, housing, transportation, poverty, surveillance and safety, immigration, tourism, planning, governance, and neighborhood change. We will explore our own positions within broader relations of domination, oppression, and resistance as well as our roles in imagining and creating alternative urban futures.
