The purpose of this course is to explore cities in contemporary Africa. Themes addressed in the course include the spatial dynamics of city-building and -unbuilding, the mix of recent arrivals and long-time residents, the differential inclusion of immigrants and newcomers, the relationship between formal employment and informal economies, the cosmopolitan impulse of new office complexes and upscale malls, new modes of urban governance, policing and security, and the installation of infrastructure. The course combines lectures and discussions with film and visual representations. Grades are based on take-home examinations and a term paper.
