Description: Sex literally shapes the city, both structurally and in our social imaginations. City governments regulate sexually oriented businesses, and not just through zoning. Specific urban sites become known as "that part of town." Urban planners look to "gayborhoods" as economic growth engines. This interdisciplinary seminar explores these and other dynamics at work in the past and the present of urban landscapes.
