This course will examine the ghetto as a social form and as a "concept" in the United States. We intend to explore the phenomenon as it moved from European cities to American Communities and became what might be described as a hyper-ghetto today. We will pay close attention to both the macro social forces that make a ghetto a place of contempt and the everyday aspects that makes it not only a livable space but one that thrives and survives in a multitude of micro social ways as well. We will explore how the social form came to exact such a distinct imprint on our collective imaginations.
