History of Urbanism

Urbanization is defining the planet, crafting our landscapes, and shaping the political economies of social life. In this course we focus on the American city, considering the historical challenges of urban growth, the role of political power, and the importance of race and nature in shaping metropolitan space and defining the potential for social justice. Through studies of a range of urban contexts, this course explores the contours of urban decline and resurrection, grounding current debates in historical context.
