Race and Ethnicity in Urban California: Research Seminar (CSRE 260B, URBANST 169B)
McKibben, C. (PI)
This course creates partnerships between Stanford students and community organizers, city planners, and policymakers in California communities undergoing significant demographic, economic and political change. It is a follow up seminar for Race and Ethnicity in Urban California, (Urban Studies 169) or other Urban studies courses. It is designed to equip students with the critical research skills needed to address the challenges facing urban California.nnEach week we will focus on a specific method and source including analysis of historic and current newspapers, oral histories, census data, mapping of neighborhoods and city space. We will work with both city governments and nongovernmental organizations. Our course goal is to look deeply into how residents in specific California cities dealt with issues around inequality, past and present.
