Cities and Citizenship (Module)

Module description

This module enables students to develop an understanding of contemporary dimensions of citizenship as a way of thinking through how these shape and are shaped by cities. This understanding includes an awareness of the different kinds of primary, secondary and grey sources available for the study of cities and citizenship. Through this conceptual model, the module uses case studies from the global North and South to explore the political, economic, social and cultural processes that shape cities and citizenship as connected sites of people’s sense of identity and belonging.
