LASS215 City and Society 3 cr.


Cities are places of great opportunity for many, but at the same time, they are also places of great inequality. This course introduces students to how cities function on a variety of levels, including their development and planning, racial and ethnic transformations within cities, and the role of arts and culture in urban centers. The course includes lectures, guest speakers, lively discussion, and several optional site visits that enhance our shared understanding of Boston, and by extension, other urban locales.

Prerequisites: LALW100; FRSM100
