This course will examine the histories, possibilities and limits of cities as global ethnographic sites. We will look at recent, past, and future manifestations of urban spaces and the people who live within them. Furthermore, we will examine cities as sites of work, as spaces of decay, as cosmopolitan centers, and as spaces of intense socio-economic, ethnic and "racial" diversity and division. This course is organized around ethnographic and historical literature and will also include close analyses of film and other media representations. Students will be expected to write short weekly reading responses as well as completing a mid-term and final exam. Grades will be based on written work, class participation, and attendance.
