Inhalt This course is only open for first year MA in Critical Urbanisms students.
Even before the world was gripped by the COVID-19 pandemic, urban scholarship has demonstrated an increasing attention to “emergencies” and the multi-scalar responses to them as they shape our cities – from the urgent need for affordable housing and related struggles, to humanitarian crises provoked by climate events and violent conflict. Similarly, global and national actors have increasingly sought to embrace an “urban” perspective to emergency response to increase the reach, durability, and sustainability of various temporary interventions in these emergency scenarios. This course adopts this dual perspective to explore how urban planning epistemologies can be used to understand various crises, as well as the role of the city as a critical space in which these emergencies play out and are addressed. Urban planning logics are investigated as both causal and redressal mechanisms in a variety of emergencies.
In this course, students will explore the ways that humanitarian, economic, environmental, and political emergencies and their responses transform our urban environments and their socio-spatial tissue through planning efforts. Topics will include the discursive framing of emergencies, the scales of action and responses they garner, and the lived experiences of emergency-affected populations in so far as they relate to or shape urban space and future visions. Students will work in a diverse set of problem spaces covered by “emergency urbanism” such as the nexus of natural disasters and relief efforts; housing crises and grassroots responses; violent conflicts and peacebuilding initiatives; and humanitarian crises and intervention. A particularly emphasis will be placed on planning interventions within these nexuses.
Lernziele - Develop a critical language with which to understand planning principles and discuss diverse interventions in the name of “emergencies” in urban contexts.
- Understanding humanitarian ways of working and how emergency planning interventions are framed, managed, and implemented in diverse contexts.
- Ability to read and discuss texts across disciplinary boundaries (notably across geography, anthropology, and political science) and engage with non-academic texts (technical reports, policy documents) from the humanitarian/development sector.
