This course focuses on citizen empowerment, taking students out of the classroom to work in the field with residents of a New York City neighborhood. As they work, students reassess assumptions about urbanization and democracy and critically examine fieldwork methods, participatory democratic frameworks, and models of neighborhood development. Students learn to conduct remote fieldwork using geographical information system (GIS) mapping, online data mining, and geo-location databases.
