The History of Urban Life

The History of Urban Life

This course examines the development of urban communities across the United States and beyond both temporally and geographically. It examines the patterns of cleavage, conflict, convergence of interest, and consensus that have structured urban life. Social, cultural, and economic forces will be analyzed for the roles they have played in shaping diverse communities of America’s cities. Because we this class is involved in an international exchange program we will be comparing NYC to Cairo specifically.
