We will explore the city as it exists, thrives, and sometimes dies in words. This class wants to take a different approach to writing about the city. The class involves a close examination of three things: the philosophy of urban action (the strange case of Bogotá, Colombia), the biology of the city (the body in urban space and the nature of human sociality), and the art of psychogeography (feeling the city, remembering the city, and the city of our memories). After we examine these three things, we will begin writing experiments that utilize their key concepts. Nothing will be difficult or inaccessible. Learning must be fun.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
