Week 9—Getting settled

Week 9—Getting settled

Main reading: Cattelino (2006); Speer (2017)

Other reading: Goldberg-Hiller (2019)

We build on the previous week’s topic to further examine urbanization, informal settlements, and homelessness in a larger, cross-cultural frame (and that considers their roots in colonialism). We also again ask how these issues look for people experiencing them, that is, participants in urban political society, outside the scope of traditional civil society.
