Introduction to Urban Culture

What is an urban culture, what is a modern city, what is a global city, how do we make sense of them and what is the relationship between them? This course surveys the cultures of cities and studies a variety of critical approaches to those cultures, focusing on twentieth-century Europe and contemporary Latin America. Texts are drawn from literature and cinema, as well as architecture, painting and other visual arts, and popular culture. Primary texts are supplemented with a number of critical and theoretical readings; discussions incorporate close reading, theory, and personal experience as urbanites. Meets with LIT-481 001.
