SOC 142 - (BH) Global Cities: Politics and Social Change in Comparative Perspective

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
This course compares the impact of global economic change on the world’s most powerful cities in the last fifteen years. The first half of the course focuses on how economic change has affected the social and political lives of the residents of New York and London. The second half looks at the way other cities (e.g., Paris, Berlin, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Los Angeles) handle the challenges of globalization and assesses what lessons their fate holds for New York and London. Course is designed to introduce students to the problems and opportunities created by the growth of a world economy and its consequences for the people, politics, and social structures of large cities.
