proseminaria

Skrócony opis: (tylko po angielsku)

The research proseminar guides students through their own research on the US cities. It introduces students to the important social processes (racial conflict, immigration, capitalism, political corruption, origins and glamour of the upper classes) in NYC and Chicago through readings in social studies and famous movies. It makes students aware of the difference between academic literature on urban communities and fiction – it guides how to read and interpret both for the best understanding of the urban social realities. It teaches students also how to use archival newspapers, statisticalatlas.org, official statistics (US Census), non-governmental organizations’ websites and google maps and google restaurant reviews in urban research.
