Exploring Birmingham: Change and Power
Kristina Scott
Prerequisites:
None
Open To:
All Students
Grading System: Letter
Max. Enrollment: 16
Meeting Times:
Tu WTh9:00am-12:00pm
Today, Birmingham embraces its “Magic City” moniker and is gaining a
reputation as the “Portland of the South”. However, its story remains a tale of
two cities. Birmingham residents include the very rich and the very poor, and
municipal division coupled with de facto school and residential segregation
hinder creation of a shared community. Is Birmingham doomed to repeat a
history marred by racial and social conflict along with economic boom and
bust cycles? Or can we create a new narrative building on a modernized
economy and renewed interest in revitalizing Birmingham’s urban core?
Through readings, films, discussions, service, and field experiences, we
will explore the social, political, economic, and environmental forces that
shape our city and contemplate whether (and, if so, how) Birmingham can
fulfill its potential. Evaluation will be based on class participation, written
assignments, service, and a group presentation. Students will spend 30
hours/week on course activities.
Estimated Student Fees: $50
