Urban Planning: Race, Class and the Just City

Urban Planning 692

This course seeks to explicate the political-economy of cities by exploring the implications of racial injustice, class inequality and failures in democratic justice in our cities. The course examines policies, practices and the historic legacies that have replicated injustice in our cities. We explore through class discussion and group projects approaches and strategies that promote more inclusive and economically and racially just cities. We also consider how cities might more effectively embrace the democratic participation of citizens across racial and economic boundaries.
