SOCI 256 - City Neighborhoods: Exploring the Formation of Urban Enclaves

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: SOCI 102 or consent of instructor
City neighborhoods are the backbone of urban life. They give city areas a distinct feel that welcomes some and excludes others. This course explores the formation of urban enclaves as city areas with high concentrations of particular ethnic groups. We will examine how and why these areas form and the economic and cultural activities that render them unique. This course focuses on US cities and tracks the intersection of immigration and economic policy as central to enclave formation. Typically offered alternate years. (CSOC; CWRT)
