Course Description: This course examines the intersection of urban geography and the geography of globalization to understand key references in academic debates, and their relevance for real-world social, economic, and political issues in our cities today. The course offers a critical, human-geographical perspective on "global cities," how these manifest in different parts of the world, how they matter for distinct realms of urban life, and how we can study features of global urban geography. Themes include empires, development, and cities; "global cities"; "Third World cities" or "cities of the global South"; urban spaces of neo-liberalism; new geographies of urban theory; and planetary urbanization. Students examine cases related to migration, sexual minorities, the circulation of ideas, and gentrification. Examples come from both the "global North" and the "global South" to help students understand when and how these categories may be useful.
