Visual Politics: The Global City of London
July 7 - July 22, 2018
Political Science , International Studies
London is a Global City! It is a planetary hub, sending, receiving and reshaping global flows in politics, economics, and society. We will explore London as a unique micro-cosmos of global politics and learn about some of the field's main concepts and dynamics, such as interdependence and global currents. Students will document their observations through photography, which will serve as the basis for classroom discussions, presentations, and the writing of analytical journals. The visuals of politics can be found in diverse and fascinating sites, such as in the visual symbols of the British Monarchy, in architecture, and in street graffiti.
