The cities we visit on this voyage around the globe are the product of their coastal locations. As a result, they face particular challenges in protecting the seaport industry on which they depend. But aside from that commonality, they all differ according to the political, economic, religious, and social histories of the cultures in which they are located. This course compares and contrasts global cities so that students will understand these places as physical and social manifestations of their respective societies. By the end of the semester, students should be able to identify the multiple forces that shape a city; analyze how a city’s architecture and planning reflect social values; and explain similarities and differences among the cities visited.
