Urban Ecologies Methods 2
Spring 2024
Taught By: Georgia Traganou
Section: A

CRN: 2102

Credits: 3

This course introduces students to urban research methods that explore, analyze, and expose through design dynamic and complex urban processes with the aim of shaping opinion, policy and decision making. Tying ethnographic and other urban research methodologies with representation, visualization and mapping skills, this course encourages students to design creative tools and methods to analyze and represent socio-spatial processes, statistical data, public policy, connections and associations between physical and social infrastructures, as well as power dynamics within communities and urban systems. Students engage in group and individual projects as they dialectically emerge from the ethnographic process and explore little-known, invisible and often deliberately marginalized processes that affect the production, quality, and use of urban spaces through critical cartography.

Open to: MS in Design and Urban Ecologies majors and students in the Design and Urban Justice graduate minor; others by permission of MS in Design and Urban Ecologies program.
