ANS 390 • Space-/Place-Making In E Asia

31755 • Fall 2016
Meets M 1200pm-300pm GAR 2.124

Description: 

This course explores the practices of the production of space and place-making in East Asia. Instead of seeing space as a passive container of socio-political processes, we emphasize the active role of space in shaping such processes, and the interaction between the spatial and social.  Rather than conceiving of place as a hermetically sealed site, we will explore the relational, translocal processes that produce distinctive localities in which multiple identities and histories are constantly (re)formed and challenged. By considering multiple aspects of the political economy, discourse, and representation, we will examine how the production of space and place-making is associated with state-building, the capital accumulation and distribution, the changing relations between state, society, and market, the operation of power, and modernity in East Asia.
