Foreign cities are often acts of imagination and projections of our curiosity toward cultural difference. We construct them as enclosed and defined spaces, touristic artifacts with a coherent physical and historical narrative to be grasped and explored. As experiential sites, however, cities are multidimensional networks where past and present are intertwined, and where human dynamics, interactions and displacements occur in the context of their topographies. This course explores several Latin American cities — Havana, Mexico DF, Santiago, Buenos Aires — through maps, photography, film, and literature to underscore their hybridism, their physical and imaginary borders as well as the multiplicity of their symbolic meanings.
