Course Syllabus

Overview: This seminar pairs theories of technological “smartness” in urban environments with concepts and practices in critical cartography to investigate, both, the infrastructures ordering data collection and creation and the sociospatial systems of representation they engender. From sensors to social media, surveillance to resilience, decision making to community building: What are the means by which our data infrastructures are designed and planned? How do these systems influence urban research and visualization? And what implications do they carry for urban practice?
