ADE-634 Beyond and B'tween Pratt's Gates
9:30 am – 12:20 pm
South Hall, 105
This course explores how social reformers and activists addressed racial, economic and social inequalities beyond and between Pratt's gates across the 20th century through to historical sites, guest speakers and archival research. You will explore why, and how-those with power and those with little power-encouraged, or discouraged, community partnerships for equitable access to the benefits of education for politically and economically disenfranchised communities. The course does this through several disciplinary lenses including social and urban history, cultural landscape theory, and historic preservation.
