Race, Space, and Place
In this course we will explore modern American architecture, landscapes, and urban spaces through the critical lens of race. We will investigate the hidden and explicit ways in which race has structured the American built environment, and we will discuss how we can use the built environment to understand racial formations, identities, and experiences. Drawing on recent scholarship in urban studies, geography, and race and ethnic studies, we will focus on specific buildings and sites that help us understand the intersections of race, space, and place. 3 hrs. sem.
