Course Description: What is the future of the city? An exploration of the past and present conditions of urban ordering and development helps students understand the 21st century challenges for cities and urban societies. In this course, students critically examine imagined city futures from historical and contemporary perspectives. Students critically investigate how imagined and real cities are influenced by popular media and technology as well as cultural, environmental, economic, social, and political contexts. Students have the chance to speculate upon possible city futures and their place in shaping or being shaped by the urban condition. This informs discussion about the role of urban professionals, individuals, communities, and governing bodies in realizing desirable city futures.
