This course examines the politics of transportation policy from a multidisciplinary perspective. We will analyze transportation infrastructures as complex socio-technical systems and focus on answering three key questions: 1) How do transportation systems impact economic, social and environmental dimensions of urban life? 2) What are the politics behind transportation planning decisions? and 3) How can transportation policy help produce more inclusive cities? The course draws from classic transportation planning and policy literature as well as new and critical scholarship on urban mobility and urban politics from a variety of disciplines, including geography, sociology, anthropology and urban planning. The course is aimed at providing graduate students with tools for the critical analysis of transportation projects and policies in the US and across the globe.
