  Course Description
Explores the intersectionality of race, class, gender & the city in the knowledge economy-based urban environment. Reviews how the shift from an industrial to knowledge-based economy reshaped and recreated the central city and its surrounding suburban region. In the new knowledge-based central city and suburban region [the urban metropolis], the interplay among race, class, gender, and income shapes urban structure, environmental design, and social interaction. The new urban metropolis is characterized by uneven neighborhood development, gentrification, and exclusive residential development. Examines the dynamics of race, along with social and gender inequality, and considers ways to reimagine underdeveloped neighborhoods. Discusses strategies to build "the just city," where equity and inclusive neighborhoods of choice dominate the urban landscape. This course is dual listed with URP 508.
