Housing and Community Development in Spain
August 27 - September 16, 2006
Community and Regional Development 153B and 198
This field course examines contemporary issues of housing and community development in Spain, with a focus on Barcelona and Catalonia. Through lectures, field trips, and hands-on work experiences, participants will learn about Spanish approaches to housing and neighborhood improvement; integration of internal migrants like Gypsies and immigrants from North Africa, Latin America, and Eastern Europe; the political, ideological, and cultural factors that inform policy; and the role of the state and community organizations in planning and development. There will be ample time for tapas, sangria, dancing, and enjoying the rich cultural and historical sites.
