CORE 002 SC - Urban Nights: Gender, Work, and Experiences


We explore how our experiences of nighttime have been shaped through the rise of modern cities and expand our understanding of gender, sexuality, and modernity introduced in Core I by articulating these concepts with discussions about the division of labor, global outsourcing, urban crowd, and sustainability. By looking at various nighttime landscapes such as gentrification and urban planning in New York, call center labors in Mumbai, and take-back-the-night campaigns in London, we will come to understand how our ideas and experiences of urban nights are deeply associated with the culturally constructed divisions between men/women, public/private, and productive/non-productive.

Course Credit: 1.0
