HISTORY OF CITIES
HIST 800 

Over fifty percent of the world’s population lives in cities. This course analyzes different types of cities as they have evolved over time. It introduces changes from market and shrine cities to colonial and global cities ending with the emergence of mega-cities in Asia and Africa. A major theme of the course is how cities have dealt with crisis and challenges.  While some of the focus is on war and natural disasters, the course also concerns what happens to city populations in the name of development and examines why post crisis reconstruction often results in the erasure of the history of and opportunities for minority populations and the working class.
