Urbanism and Urbanization

Sociology 1001: Introduction

Geography as Context

  • Continuing the theme of human action within social and structural context leads us to the idea that ‘geography’ is an important aspect of context

  • Where did you grow up?

    • What was it like growing up there?

    • What types of experiences did you have that were unique (or somewhat unique) to that locale?

    • How did it influence what you did and what happened to you?

    • Does your future involve living in a city?

Urbanization

  • The social forces of industrialization, capitalism, and rationalization either caused or coincided (depending on what theory you accept) with urbanization

    • This refers to the increased organization of social life in

cities

  • Very much an on-going process

  • Consider the issue of city size in the US and across the

globe (see worksheet)
