This course focuses on original works that have been influential to the field of urban geography. The first third of the course consists of extensive reading and discussion of pre-selected "classical" urban pieces. The second third consists of student-led reviews of important urban books. The final third consists of student-led projects devoted to a particular theme (announced on the first day of class). It is designed for students who have taken urban courses in the past who are interested in extending this interest in a non-textbook, more interactive environment.
