This course explores how gender, race, and other forms of social difference both produce and are produced by cities. We will examine the 'gendering' and 'racialization' of urban spaces and places such as urban dwellings, the street, public spaces, urban workplaces, and neighborhood and community spaces. We will also consider how gender and race come together with other categories of difference-class, sexuality, age, ethnicity, nationality, disability, etc.-in urban life and in the relationship between cities and other places. Topics we will cover include: urban design, public space, 'queer' space, social control, mobility, domestic space, recreation, consumption, and work, among others.
Open to Undergraduate students.
