To think about for the midterm

–the gaze (possession, power, perception)
–relationship of the individual to the crowd
–structuring role of a capitalist economy in the experience/writing of the city
–evolution of the flâneur
–role of landmarks (as opposed to monuments)

If you missed the make-up class held yesterday, do be sure to get the notes from someone who was there. We discussed the ways different texts fit into these categories, as well as the way they all relate to each other. (Also there was some serious discussion of the dialectical image.)

Please email me or leave a comment here with any questions or problems. Otherwise, à mardi.
