AMS 222 The City in American Culture
4 hours; 4 credits
Impressions and analyses (literary, social, historical, cinematic, and photographic) of the varied cultures, institutions, and environments that are the substance of American urban life. A course that posits few facile solutions to the urban crisis but knows which questions are to be asked and which myths must be demolished if cities are ever to become humane and pleasurable organisms rather than death- and profit-bound ones. (social science) NOTE: This course satisfies the College Option.
