Inhalt Camps are proliferating across the global landscape as spaces that protect, spaces that expose, spaces that control, and spaces that resist. Camps as a settlement typology are recognizable across an increasingly diverse set of geographies and encounter, instantiate, or distance themselves from cities in multiple ways. Furthermore, while camps have taken center stage in popular imaginings of displacement and particular the plight of refugees, the majority of refugees today live not in camps, but in cities – forcing us to reconsider the empirical and theoretical correspondence between the camp and the city in such discourses.
This seminar situates camps within broader global discourse and urban politics to explore the sometimes intertwined, sometimes antithetical relationship between the camp and city. Rather than approaching camps from the more typical lens of conflict urbanism and refugee studies, students start from the camp – thereby widening the range of phenomena explored. This approach expands the study of the urban by examining camps and camp-like settlements as they instantiate the outcomes of mobility politics and global conflicts. Exploring such iterations as the protest camp, refugee camp, labor camp, and military camp, students will gain a deeper understanding of the architectures, social lives, economies, and politics of the camp as a settlement typology. Classroom discussions of weekly readings will serve to untangle the ways in which both the form and the idea of both “the camp” and “the city” co-narrate each other’s histories, realities, and theoretical underpinnings.
Lernziele Learning Objectives
- an ability to analyze design logics, governance politics, and lived realities of encampment and relate them to debates in urban studies
- an ability to read, discuss, and produce texts across disciplinary boundaries (notably across geography, anthropology, and political science).
- an understanding of the spatially and socially transformative power of camps, the groups that inhabit them, and the broader urban politics and struggles into which they write themselves.
