Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

While the “natural” environment has received its fair share of social science attention in recent years, primarily due to environmentalist concerns surrounding climate change and other alarming ecological processes, the notion of the “built” environment has often been limited to discussions of architecture and design in urban settings. This course will encourage a broad reading and discussion of social approaches to the built environment, ranging from critical infrastructure studies to political ecology to actor-network-theory and dwelling perspectives.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

A mandatory seminar paper will count for 50% of the grade. The rest of the grade will be determined by short oral presentations and data collection and analysis assignments, as well as by course participation.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

In order to receive a passing grade, you need at least 60 points. A 'sehr gut' requires at least 90 out of 100 points (a 'gut' at least 80 points, etc.). Attendance is required throughout the semester.
