CAST 232 - History of Race in American Cities and Suburbs

FC SSCI CD
4 credits
This course explores the social and cultural history of American cities and suburbs as sites of ethnic formation and community and interracial and interethnic contestation/struggle, with a focus on major developments and examples from the twentieth century. Case studies on urban unrest, the rise of ethnoburbs, gentrification, and other topics will illuminate distinct histories and places, while weaving together a broad understanding of how urban change, suburbanization, migration, economic restructuring, and political organizing have transformed American life and the experiences of racial and ethnic minorities.
