HIST 05378 - History of Camden
The purpose of this course is twofold. First, it examines the multifaceted origins of the “urban crisis” in a city that has developed an infamous reputation as the poorest and most dangerous metropolis in American. Students will investigate the historical legacy of political and socioeconomic factors that have shaped the urban problems in a post-industrial city like Camden such as: racial segregation, deindustrialization, white flight and suburban sprawl, public housing, urban renewal and environmental racism. Second, this is a service-learning course that will require students to participate in several community-based projects in the city that introduce them to policymakers, social activists, and ordinary residents working towards improving the myriad challenges in Camden. This course will be offered every other year.
