Cities of the World

Terence Milstead
Day/Time Taught: 
TR 11:00 am – 12:15 pm
Course Number: 

This course seeks to provide students with a broad understanding of factors driving physical, economic and social change in cities around the globe. Emphasis will be placed on similarities and differences between various cities and each will be discussed in relation to the larger cultural, political, economic and geographic factors that either constrain or promote urbanization and “development”. By the end of the course, students will be expected to demonstrate a broad understanding of the multiple forces, both macro and micro, that are influencing the development of cities across the globe, as well as the ways in which particular global forces link cities together. Special attention will also be given to the experiences of the most vulnerable groups in urban areas such as women and children in poverty, and people disenfranchised due to class, race, ethnicity or religion.
