Course Description: This field-oriented course will examine psychological processes that underlie the way we think and feel about urban spaces – focusing on London. It history is rich, its diversity surprising, and its sense of place almost magical. Despite hosting millions of residents, London is distinctive in incorporating a variety of natural spaces and distinctive architectural districts, so the city is usually experienced as a series of neighborhoods. Although our focus is London, field trips will provide additional opportunities to think about the spirit of place, and the sustainability of human settlements in the surrounding countryside.
