Examines a different subject or problem from a comparative framework with an interdisciplinary perspective. Offered: AWSp.

Taking the meaning of home as a theme, this course aims to focus on the interdisciplinary urban and health implications and responses of war in areas of conflict. Combining theory and reality, we will use Palestine as a case study. Focusing on the occupation practices on people and the built environment, and the “walking through walls” military strategy, the objectives of this course are:

  • To examine the meaning of home in times of political and military conflicts.
  • To introduce linkages and interrelations between the built environment and health issues.
  • To explore peoples’ response to war and stress of the occupation. To brainstorm socio-institutional polices to mitigate implication of war.
