Slums and Urban Develop

Fall 2019

Taught By: Maria Carrizosa

Section: A

CRN: 5425

Credits: 3

The aim of this seminar is to help students gain familiarity with the main authors, key discussions, major challenges, and contradictions springing from this topic. We will make use of texts, films and guest lecturers spanning different disciplines (history, development, urban planning, economy, journalism, architecture), to critically discuss the core terms and key arguments in the literature. This will enable students to craft a clear and responsible professional attitude of their own. Central to this course is the recognition that a balanced, nuanced view of this subject is helpful on the ground, but it requires acquaintance with several key discussions taking place in the international urban development community. An underlying question of this course is: What does the persistence of slums tell us about development, society, and economy at large?
