URBST 210: Urban Social Movements

Private Group active 1 month, 3 weeks ago

This course analyzes movements for change in urban policies and institutions, especially mobilizations by groups without ready access to power through normal political channels. We begin our discussion by exploring theoretical perspectives of what we mean by “urban social movements” and the relationship between “the urban” and “social movements”. The remainder of the class examines questions of genealogies and evolution, strategies and tactics, key players, and goals and outcomes of selected urban social movements. Of particular interest is the intersectional structuring nature of power as it pertains to overlaps and disjunctures between and within urban social movements. The goal is to develop a critical eye for understanding and analyzing urban social movements and popular framings of them.
