Advanced Urban Geography
Fall 2018 - Dr. Yolande Pottie-Sherman
Seminar in Advanced Urban Geography offers an advanced overview of research on selected topics in urban geography. How we “theorize,” or think about, the city has a profound effect on the type of planning solutions we propose to solve urban social problems. It is important, then, to think critically about what taken-for-granted assumptions we bring to our study of the city and how these assumptions relate to broader questions of social justice, ethics, politics, and human rights.
