Peopling New York City and Its Neighborhoods

Professor: Ida Susser
ITF: Jen Gieseking
Campus: Hunter

This is the course site of a Macaulay Honors College / Hunter College CUNY seminar that explores perspectives on urban ethnography with an emphasis on New York City – including specifically: the Brooklyn neighborhood of Greenpoint Williamsburg, the Morningside Heights Harlem neighborhood and Greenwich Village on the topic of lgbtq space. We also pay attention to the emergence of different kinds of social movements in comparative urban contexts in Europe, Africa and elsewhere. Questions of citizenship, ethnicity, race and poverty will be discussed within an analysis of increasing inequality precipitated by the ongoing global transformation of work and the restructuring of contemporary cities. The course was taught by Dr. Ida Susser.
