This seminar explores women’s and men’s everyday experiences of built environments and the city and considers how gender (along with race, class, age, and sexual orientation) affects the design and use of a range of spaces from the most private to the most public. The main focus is on the United States from the late nineteenth century to the present, but other countries offer examples of built projects fostering full citizenship or practices of spatial segregation that deny basic civil rights. Readings are drawn from architecture, history, gender studies, and geography. Students are required to present papers. Limited enrollment.
