Cities get divided by war, religion, politics, national boundaries–or by all of the above. Often a smaller city may be nested within a larger city as in the case of Sun City within Phoenix, or Old Delhi in Delhi, India. While some divisions are peaceful, others are conflicted. For example, are there divides in culture and lifestyles? Do the two sides WANT a wall or not? How do people move across boundaries? How does the economy work? Maybe the poor on one side work for the rich on the other (as in South African cities, even today).
For this paper, choose your city. Then focus on one or two aspects of your chosen city. Economy? Logisticshow do people travel? Is one side or the other in control?
For your final paper for this class, please write 4-5 pages (1.5 spaced) on your chosen divided city.
References in addition to your page count. Provide a minimum of four references. While you will draw online for much of your information, please consult at least ONE journal article–this will point to areas of discussion.
