Part 2:  (due in 15 hrs)

Read chapter 10 of Cities and Urban Life

Some social scientists suggest that the US is really made of socioeconomic castes instead of classes. While this takes lack of socioeconomic mobility to an extreme, it is food for thought. How many people in Coco's world, for instance, are actually transcending poverty? Although we are supposed to have a meritocracy, few of us really experience extreme social mobility even if we try and examples abound of those who inherited rather than earned their place in society (Paris Hilton comes to mind, but she is too easy to make fun of). I look forward to reading a lively discussion of how urban life is affected by all types of social stratification. (150 words)

Part 3: (due in 2-3 days)

 Read Chapter 11 of the textbook, "Race, Ethnicity, and Gender" 


This week we are focusing on social diversity and the role of race, ethnicity, and gender in shaping urban life. Share your thoughts on the readings, weblinks, and lecture here. What did you score on the "race" quiz? Did you know about the history of miscegenation laws and internment camps? Here is a propaganda film made by the US about the camps: (150 words)

Part 4: (due in 2-3 days)

Read chapter 12 of Cities and Urban Life


Housing, education, and crime - I'm sure that all of you have opinions and thoughts about all three of these important issues. All of these are intensified in urban areas, and ideas about reform abound while real solutions seem more elusive. I look forward to reading your comments and reactions to this week's reading and lecture.

Listen to at least the preview (3 minutes) of this lecture. You may find this site to be a good resource in general.  (150 words)

Part 5: (due in 2-3 days)

Read Chapter 13 of Cities and Urban Life


This week we explore the characteristics of cities throughout the developing world, with an eye to what they have in common and how they vary. By understanding the history and the challenges which cities in the developing world face, we can begin to understand urbanization from a global perspective. Let's discuss the readings, as well as the stereotypes that we have about cities in the developing world and anything that surprised you or confirmed your suspicions about urban life in the far reaches of the planet.  (150 words)

Part 6: (due in 2-3 days)


So for this week's DB, post your final thoughts on your experience with the material as a whole this semester. You may post any highlights and/or lowlights from any of the topics we've addressed in the last 12 weeks, but now that you've gotten a taste of the history, inner-workings, and diversity of urban life, I would also like you to put some thought into what you see as the biggest problem facing the city dwellers of today or of the future -- locally, nationally, globally, or in whatever urban context you choose. And of course, I can't ask you to do that without also asking for one or two ideas on how you think government, private industry, or whoever has a stake in the game, might contribute to a solution to that problem. Looking forward to reading your concluding remarks!
