PCE 335 - Future Cities: Strategy and Possibility (4 Cr.)

How can imagination be used as a tool for problem-solving? In this workshop-based class students combine analysis of urban case studies with realizing and expanding their ability to see and pursue solutions, even those considered “unimaginable.” Cities are crossroads where many different people, industries, and cultural activities interact. But cities, including Baltimore, have also been places of great division and inequity. Using the city as our setting, the class explores examples of imagination as a skill, from public policy, art, literature, and science. A series of creative and research assignments culminate in students having the opportunity to design and share their own “unimaginable” about a topic of their choice. Prerequisite: a 100-level course in Peace Studies or sophomore standing. Spring Semester. Hopper.
