First-Year Foundations (FYF) Seminar
Social Justice and the City
Who benefits and who loses from urban transformation? This course is an introduction to the concept of social justice from an urban perspective. It will highlight how unequal relations of race, class, gender, sexuality, and ability operate through the urban environment, and how these conditions can be contested though political mobilization. A variety of cases from cites around the world are used to explore issues related to segregation, gentrification, policing, migration, and access to public spaces and services. Restricted to newly admitted first-year students. Not eligible for CR/NCR option.
