Course Description

Cities have had a disproportionate influence on the development of human society, and it is in cities that one can best see much of the creation and interaction of cultures. It is crucial to keep in mind that no city or civilization has a single, monolithic culture, but is instead a composite of different cultures. This course takes a broad view of culture, including such familiar areas as art, literature, and philosophy, but also the cultures of the workplace, the family, and politics. This course fulfills the general university wide history requirement.
