Fugitive Planning

Fall 2020

Taught By: Mia White

Section: A

CRN: 7351

Credits: 4

This course attempts to critically develop the idea of “fugitive planning” using a Black geographic and “marronage” orientation to space, place-making and urban futurity. Using historical, theoretical and real-world case studies (notably, the Philly resistance organization Move! and Seneca Village/Central park) together with urban-aesthetic resistance practices such as Rasquache-based (Chicano) placemaking and others from the global south, the course will focus on the labor of the “undercommons” – we who are deemed radical, discontent, delinquent, and undesirable, in order to develop a counter-hegemonic, transgressive and imaginative understanding of how space is made and remade without expertise, sanction or safety. The course is discussion based seminar and requires mutual engagement and deep reflection.
