SOC 317 - RACE & THE CITY

Course examines how urban space takes on racialized meanings, how race serves as an organizing principle within cities, and the relationship between race, place, and power. Topics include: politics of Chicago neighborhoods, race in a post-civil rights era, functions of housing markets and other institutions in protecting privilege and power. Finally, using race as an analytical tool, we explore how the city is experienced and imagined differently when using race as our lens.
