Description: How do we dwell in our cities? Through what economic, political, and social processes are our living environments constituted? What does it mean to be shelterless and homeless in our propertied world? This course will look at housing processes and housing policies in and across a range of global contexts. It will explicitly adopt a comparative and transnational approach to the geography of housing, showing how a globalized perspective provides important insights into local shelter struggles and housing policy debates. In the broadest sense, the course will use housing as a lens to study space and society, state and market, the public and private sectors, power and change.
