UNDERGRADUATE MAJOR
The Urban Studies major provides the opportunity for students to
explore scholarship on cities, suburban communities, and
metropolitan regions with an interdisciplinary lens. Coursework in
the major is drawn from the affiliated areas of Africology,
Architecture, Criminal Justice Educational Policy & Community
Studies, Geography, History, Public and Nonprofit Administration,
Political Science, Public Health, Sociology and Urban Planning, in
addition to Urban Studies. Although interdisciplinary, the
discipline of Urban Studies encompasses a distinct body of
knowledge, one that combines both theoretical and applied
approaches to understand urban processes. The major is designed
to be flexible to allow the student to develop a strong foundation
from the core courses and then build a set of elective courses that
address particular urban histories and problems from different
disciplines, depending on student interest and future goals.
Committee Interdisciplinary Major (CIM) in Urban Studies (L&S/BA)

Summer Courses Offered 2016
Buildings-Landscapes-Cultures, School of Architecture and
Urban Planning
Class Dates: June 9-July 11, 2014; Final exhibit: July 25, 2014
Preparatory Workshop (attendance required), June 2. 2014, 10:00
AM - 4:00 PM. School of Architecture and Urban Planning, UWM
We will be accepting a maximum of 15 students. You may take a
maximum of 6 credits. Choose from the list below.
This summer course provides students an immersion experience in
the field recording of the built environment and cultural landscapes
and an opportunity to learn how to write history literally “from the
ground up.” The 2014 field school focuses on Washington Park, a
racially, economically and culturally diverse neighborhood known
for its artist communities and active neighborhood groups. A
recent influx of Somali and Burmese refugees has added to an
existing diverse group of white, African American and Hmong
residents. This summer we will study a variety of homes in this
neighborhood—everyday residences, boarded up homes,
refabricated and reused homes, homes transformed into stores and
workplaces, homes as works of art, homes remembered in family
histories and homes in domestic worlds. As cultural resources,
saturated with diverse values, memories, stories and imaginations,
our homes matter, because they represent how we feel about our
community and how we value our environment. This project seeks
to employ the enduring creativity of storytelling, the power of
digital humanities, and depth of local knowledge in order to
galvanize Milwaukee residents to talk about their homes as
repositories of community memory, spaces of caring and markers
of civic pride.

James Harris

3rd – 4 week session: July 25-August 20, 2016
An interdisciplinary course that explores the intersection of
multiculturalism and urban development. This course is a required
course for the major in urban studies and counts toward the urban
studies certificate. In this course we will examine how city
building and suburbanization are linked to race, ethnicity,
immigration, class, and other social attributes by drawing on a
variety of case studies from several disciplines in the social
sciences. We will consider how economic development,
federal and local policies, urban politics, and local community
actions have all served in different ways and at different times,
to structure inequality and the marginalization and privilege of
certain groups and communities. We will also consider the ways
different groups and organizations have used urban space to
construct community identities and foster movements for social
change.

A significant part of the course will examine how race and
ethnicity have shaped patterns of segregation and economic
division across the American urban landscape as well as the role of
immigration and ethnic enclaves and economies in transforming
urban spaces in the 20th and 21st century. We will also consider
how gender and sexual orientation have been defined and
represented in urban space. This course includes 20 hours of
service learning.

Exploring the Urban Environment
TBA
TR
2:00-3:15 PM
Today’s urban form is the result of a long progression of
demographic, economic and political process. This
multidisciplinary course will provide a broad overview of some of
these changes in American cities with a particular focus on
Milwaukee. The course will be divided into two parts. In the first
half of the course, we will examine some of the basic “urban”
theories. These will include elements of race, class, crime,
geography, economics, etc. With this background in basic urban
theories, we will move into the second half of the course which
will look specifically at the Milwaukee experience. In this last
half, we will explore the intersection of historical development and
the earlier social theories, which will provide a more relevant and
local perspective.
URB STD 360*
Perspectives on the Urban Scene
Topic: “Food in the City: Urban Agriculture, Food Justice, a
and Environmental Sustainability”
LEC 201
TBA
ONLINE
In this course, students will have the opportunity to explore urban
agriculture and food justice movements in the U.S. and abroad.
The course will address the historical roots of growing food in the
city as well as examining how urban agriculture represents both a
social movement working to create a more just society and as an
aid in the implementation of urban environmental
sustainability. Along with this, the course will give special focus
to the city of Milwaukee as a city on the cutting edge in the area of
urban agriculture. Local organizations and city programs such as
Growing Power, Walnut Way Conservation Corp, Milwaukee
Urban Gardens, Home Gr/Own, as well as Milwaukee’s many
farmers markets and community gardens will be studied as
17 | P a g e
*Online course available
examples of urban agriculture at work for environmental
sustainability and food justice. Looking at the topic of food
through the lens of urban political economy, this course will
emphasize inequality and neoliberal globalization and their
respective impacts on where certain foods end up and who has
access to them. Students will examine why certain areas of the
city have plentiful access to organic food stores, farmers markets,
and grocery stores, while in other areas residents are dependent on
gas stations, corner stores and food banks. Finally, the course will
touch on our relationship to food, the growth of distinct food
cultures in cities, and the larger meaning and significance of urban
food geographies.
