This course introduces students to the multidisciplinary field of urban studies, investigating why cities are places of economic and political opportunity for some but not for others. Compares major social scientific models and methods for studying urban poverty and inequality, and explores the major social, political, and economic forces that shape U.S. cities. Special attention is paid to the existence of inequalities based on race, class, ethnicity, gender, and/or sexuality, and to the analysis of proposals to reduce these inequalities.
