Re-Thinking Citites

This seminar explores the topic of how individual academic disciplines and professional fields think about cities. Anthropologists, sociologists, planners, economists, lawyers, political scientists, and other scholars and professionals employ often long-standing theories, methodologies, and bodies of knowledge, without always recognizing the limitations, as well as strengths, of such approaches. Each class will feature a top scholar from a different discipline or field who will present a paper and participate in discussion about the discipline/field approach.
