This course focuses on the restructuring of American cities in the late 20th century and the implications of that restructuring for the well-being of urban residents. Topics emphasized include the decentralization of people and jobs out of central cities and northeastern metropolitan areas, racial residential segregation, inner-city gentrification, urban public service provision issues, the role of new (Latin American and Asian) urban immigrants, and feminist perspectives on the American city.
