Urban History Lab

Fall 2018

Taught By: Joseph Heathcott

Section: A

CRN: 4039

Credits: 3

Students develop a critical, future-oriented understanding of the history of urbanism. The course exposes students to multiple perspectives on urban history, and invites them to critique the assumptions underlying these approaches. Students analyze change in urban environments over time and look at who shapes cities, how cities change, and why those in power want to shape and reshape cities. Students emerge with a critical and global understanding of urban history, and a perspective on cities and urbanism that is constantly evolving.
