Colloquium on the Law, Politics, and Economics of Urban Affairs
URPL-GP.2616, 4 points.
This course, taught jointly by faculty at NYU Law and Wagner, offers students an opportunity to explore the theoretical underpinnings of the leading current debates about critical urban policy issues. For spring 2014, the course will focus on the challenges of economic and racial segregation in both neighborhoods and schools. The primary focus of the colloquium are discussions of works in progress by scholars from around the country, working in such disciplines as planning, law, public policy, and economics. In colloquium weeks, students participate in an in-depth discussion of the paper with the author. Students submit short papers critiquing selected works in progress. In alternate weeks, students meet with faculty to discuss supplemental readings and learn the background necessary to understand each paper.
