How are cities around the world in crisis? A crisis for whom? In this course, we will explore the challenges facing global cities, megacities, (post-)socialist cities, and cities right at our doorstep. Some of these challenges involve world-wide gentrification, segregation, and displacement; modern architecture and urban informality; deepening inequality; and urban revolution. The course is open to all Mason students but should be of particular interest for GLOA majors with one of the four concentrations: Global Economy and Management; Global Inequalities and Responses; Human Security; and Media, Communication, and Culture. The course also fulfills the Mason Core ‘Synthesis’ requirement. Please note if you are counting this course as a concentration course, it cannot double count anywhere else
