17. URBST 103: Urban Diversity

This is a new course

Contact:Leonard Rodberg
Abstract:This course provides an introduction to the study of urban diversity in the
United States. It explores the different forms of
cultural belonging that dot the urban landscape, and analyzes the historical,
social, political, and economic forces that shape the everyday lives of diverse
urban populations. The course also analyzes debates over migration,
assimilation, pluralism, multiculturalism, and cosmopolitanism and introduces
students to urban studies’ multidisciplinary approaches for the study of
diversity and inequality.

General Education Requirements: This course fulfills two general education
requirements. Through its discussion of urban studies approaches for
studying the social production of difference and inequality, this course
fulfills the “Analyzing Social Structures” Area requirement. Because this
course engages in discussions of the American social and political system,
social values and attitudes toward society, and the role of urban residents in
shaping their communities and values, it fulfills the “United States” Context
of Experience requirement.
