Theorizing the City

GOVT 392
Fall 2019
Section: 01  
Course Cluster: Sustainability and Environmental Justice, Urban Studies

Recent years have brought a shift to imagining the city, rather than the nation-state, as the primary allegiance for citizens, with its own unique set of challenges and responsibilities. What are our political and ethical obligations to the strangers we live near? Should cities be governed more democratically? This course will examine topics such as income inequality, environmental justice, immigration, localism vs. cosmopolitanism, and public art.
