AAS 314 - History of Urban America

3 credits
An examination of the history of the American city: its people, its culture, and its politics. The course examines why cities look the way they do, why they are disproportionately poor in relation to suburbs, and why they are home to disproportionately large minority populations. Students consider such questions as: Are cities are in crisis? Can and should they be saved? The course looks at why cities are the way they are, and whether they still matter in an increasingly suburban nation. The course will also consider how these larger issues apply to nearby cities, such as New Bedford, Fall River, and Providence. Cross-listed as PST 369, HST 369
