Back on the block. I’m teaching Urban Politics this semester. First time in a few years. The first day is usually a give the syllabus send them home type of day, but I wanted to deal with the big questions. So I started with two youtube videos (last time I taught the class youtube didn’t exist):
The first I got from my man K.O.:

The second I got looking to find something to juxtapose the first with:

These videos work to drive home very specific images of Detroit, but also specific ideas about what cities were designed for.
The syllabus for those who want to follow along.
