MLS 544 Chicago Aspirations: Past, Present, and Future
From its origins in the nineteenth century, Chicago has evoked endless
aspirations. As both a place and an idea, it has inspired multi-layered
images of an urban home, a locus of industry and a contested cultural
landscape. Chicago Aspirations will rely upon artistic, literary, and
historical depictions of its evolving identity. The course will integrate
campus sessions as well as field-based explorations of Chicago as both a
contemporary and historical city.
