Creative Placemaking in Harlem

Spring 2018

Taught By: Ivan Raykoff

Section: A

CRN: 7078

Credits: 2

This course explores “creative placemaking” as a transformational nexus of the arts, community, and identity. It focuses on historical and current trends in the social, political, and economic life of Harlem through the artforms of music, dance, theater, and the visual arts, engaging students in site-specific learning opportunities to examine how the arts serve as a means for individuals and institutions to both honor traditions and inspire change in their communities. Topics include the fabled history of Harlem, the impact of development and gentrification, and public and private funding for the arts. This seminar+ course, which only meets during the first seven weeks of the semester, includes required attendance at selected events and exhibits outside of regular class time.
