Urban commons

How to attend this course

The aim of this course is twofold: first, to critique the mainstream trends of urbanisation and, second, to discuss alternative urban futures premised on the commons. This course consists of six classes. Each class begins with an anchor video, which provides a bird’s eye-view of the class introducing the main problems and lessons. Then the selected videos go into more depth. For even more depth, one should study the proposed readings. Finally, some classes conclude with a quiz to use the reading and watching material in a more experiential setting. Ideally watch and study the material in the recommended order.
