However, in terms of your course work, it is unlikely that you will be able to construct a rounded discussion that is informed by a sound theoretical and critical knowledge base from this alone. Please be aware that assignments that rely entirely on internet sources and make no reference to the relevant sociological/ criminological literature (indicated in the reading lists provided below) are likely to be marked as a fail.

  4. Week 1 Introduction: The Chicago School of Sociology 20 items
    Week 1 will outline the content, structure and core concepts of the course, alongside an introduction to the theory and methods of the Chicago School of Sociology. The Chicago School is often considered to be the birthplace of urban sociology, and we will trace the threads of people, place and time that cohered in its unique contribution as part of this introduction. One key method associated with the Chicago School is that of urban ethnography, and we will discuss a number of issues relating to these studies and their contribution. We will examine critiques of the Chicago School and assess its legacy for the contemporary sociology of the city.

  5. Week 2 Walking the City: An Alternative Guide 29 items
    In Week 2 we will begin an alternative lineage of approaches to urban living, specifically those that combine walking and thinking sociologically. Starting with Edgar Allen Poe’s short story The Man of the Crowd alongside a number of ‘shadow’ sociologies of urban life – Mayhew in London and ‘Shadow’ in Glasgow – the class will consider the relationship between the creativity and urban development. This discussion will engage specifically with the work of Walter Benjamin, the concept of the urban flaneur, and their contribution to alternative ‘ways of seeing’ the city. Finally we will discuss urban walking tours as a contemporary example of these traditions.

  6. Week 3 Theorising the City: From Above and Below 21 items
    Week 3 focuses on the development of urban theory over the course of the twentieth century, with emphasis on a cluster of thinkers who emerged in the postwar period in the context of the new urban sociology. These scholars – Jane Jacobs, Henri Lefebvre and Michel de Certeau – in different ways explored the role of power, capital and politics in the urban metropolis, and used theory and praxis be used to interrogate these forces. Central to these formulations was the concept of the city ‘from above’ – as seen by planners, architects and power-brokers – and the lived experience of urban life ‘from below’, and the multiform tensions and challenges that emerge from these perspectives.

  7. Week 4 The city in the twenty-first century 23 items
    In Week 4 the focus will shift to the twenty-first century. It has been said that if ‘the 19th century was a century of empires, the 20th century… a century of nation states, the 21st century will be a century of cities’ (quoted in Barber 2003, xi). With up to 70% of the world’s population estimated to be living in cities by 2050, efforts to understand the broad implications of this change are increasingly vital. This class will focus on a number of conceptual innovations developed by urban sociologists – the ‘network society’ (Castells) and ‘global city’ (Sassen) – as a way of understanding the transnational connectedness of urban life.

  8. Week 5 Du Bois, Blackness and the US City 11 items
    In Week 5 we will welcome Dr Giovanni Picker for a guest lecture on W.E.B Du Bois. Du Bois is the first sociologist who engages in a systematic way with the study of the intersections of class and race in urban areas. He fundamentally contributed to the understanding of racism and structural racial inequalities in cities. However, his work has largely been neglected by sociologists for many years, and only recently it has been considered in all its value. In this class we will discuss the relevance of The Philadelphia Negro (1899), Du Bois' mostly influential work in urban sociology, and we will reflect on the reasons why the scholar has largely been neglected in the history of (urban) sociology.

    Weeks 8-10 focus on ethnographic examples of the changing nature of lived experience in cities, focusing on three thematic areas: crime and street culture; mobility and belonging; gentrification and ‘rights to the city’. Each will explore these new documentations of everyday life against the backdrop of urban theory, past and present, and critically assess the need for new theoretical lenses. Students will be encouraged to draw on contemporary examples that relate to these thematic areas to create a dynamic and grounded sense of the changing parameters of urban life.

  14. Week 11 Urban Futures and the Post-Human City 18 items
    In Week 11, the ethnographic insights gleaned from previous weeks will be re-examined in light of theoretical debates pertaining to urban futures and the ‘post-human’ city. Increasingly, urban scholars are forming a view that the challenges that cities will face in the coming century can only be addressed through a recognition of the material networks that exist between human beings and their lived environment. With an emphasis on cutting-edge research in the humanities and social sciences that has developed strategies for understanding the ‘post-human’ city, the final lecture will explore the changing nature of, and possible futures for urban life in the twenty-first century.
