188. URBST 107: Urban Communities: Local-Global Connections in Queens

This is a new course

Contact:Madhulika S. Khandelwal
Abstract:An introduction to the diverse communities of Queens and the local and
global issues and networks encountered in them. It focuses on how immigration has created
complex settings with multiple cultural groups moving into and out of local neighborhoods.
Students will examine the changing demographics and intercultural relations that mark
multicultural Queens. They will see how these communities are addressing a series of issues
ranging from economic struggles, to the formation of new socio-cultural identities, to new forms
of civic and political participation. This course provides an opportunity for students to analyze
their individual identity in the context of the cultural diversity of Queens and to perceive their
own community within an increasingly globalized world.
