WGST 3800 Gender and Urban Geographies

4 semester hours

This course uses the discipline of critical urban geography and feminist theory to explore the following questions: 1) What is a city? 2) Why do humans live in cities? 3) How does living in a city shape who humans are? We explore the phenomena of racial and gender segregation in cities, investigate the spatialization of race, the construction of vice and crime in the city, and discuss the gender of the division between the public and the private in urban geographies.
