Worldwide, the majority of people live in cities, and that number is growing. The New South of the United States is experiencing a renewal – transitioning from past industries such as railways, textiles, agriculture and shipping to new and growing urban centers. These Urban Systems have an impact on water, climate, coexistence of species, air, food and other resources that humans depend on. But each city has a unique approach to embedding these essential ecosystem services into their new designs.
In this class, we will visit three cities representing the New South: Greenville, Atlanta and Charleston - each with a different history and modern identity. We will explore how each of these cities is creating a new urban model – designed both for people and natural systems. This class includes a required co-requisite lab component, satisfying the laboratory science and advanced studies requirements of the Elon Core Curriculum program. Offered winter, 2019.
Grades count toward an Elon GPA.
There will be a required meeting about the course on April 27, 2018. Location to be announced.
Students are required to take the fall pre-departure course associated with this Winter Term course. All students will automatically be registered for the pre-departure course but must register themselves for the Winter Term course during pre-registration for Winter Term.
