Re: TEACHING: History of the American City: Key Documents, Key Sites

I do my urban classes visually and virtually so I suggest giving students places they can use online such as image archives, film and video searches, as well as historical and classical materials (especially) books that are in public domain and can be read or downloaded freely. This way when the course is completed they can use what they've learned from you to pursue their interests. For example, Jacob Riis' works are online.

TEACHING: History of the American City: Key Documents, Key Sites

I’m developing a new interdisciplinary course that tracks the history of the American city. It’s aimed at advanced undergraduate and graduate students, and one goal is to have them interpret primary documents. If you were to imagine the ideal collection of documents, what would you include? I’m as interested in suggestions for visual, architectural, and spatial evidence as I am for texts and other written documents because I’d like students to grasp that cities are physical facts, social artifacts, and discursive constructions. Any suggestions for a text?
