Minor in Sociology and Social Anthropology of Economy, Work and Development - Living in Cities SOSA 3284   Living in Cities
CREDIT HOURS: 3
2008 marked the first time in history that more of the global population lived in cities than in rural areas. What perspectives to anthropology and sociology offer on cities and their inhabitants? This course explores the social dynamics that constitute 'the city' and surveys how social scientists have studied and engaged with cities and city-dwellers. It approaches 'the city' both as a whole and through its constituent parts: people and places. Examples may be drawn from cities large and small, near and far - including Halifax.
