This class traces the history and representation of cities in America, from the 18th throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. In addition to an introduction to urbanism and urban theory, I will provide an overview of the role of cities in the construction of American myths, and of manifestations of the urban imagination in American literature and the arts.
