The seminar will explore the global phenomenon of urbanism across different historical and geographical contexts. Students will collaboratively develop creative and critical insights regarding cityscapes through writing assignments and classroom discussions, considering cities as multilayered spaces of forgetting and erasure, with complex relationships to the historical past. Students will explore how cities—and sounds that reverberate throughout urban spaces—also make other perceptions of time and space possible. These urban sounds and other media sometimes make those forgotten layers of the past discernible, further revealing alternative forms of social interactions and relations.

When Offered Fall, Spring.
