This course introduces the multiple dimensions and theoretical perspectives involved in understanding cities and the process of urbanization.

The course will introduce urban demography, economy and institutions, infrastructure, architecture and visual representation, physical space, social relations, and culture. Students will undertake individual and group assignments in a dynamic seminar format in which these perspectives will be illustrated through a sample of cities from different regions of the world.
