It is about considering the myriad of possible futures for our cities and reflecting onhow different societies and individuals have envisaged wonderful or terrible future outcomes.This subject critically examines imagined city futures from historical and contemporary perspectives,incorporating concepts and approaches from utopian literature, critical urban theory, andphilosophy to explore how the â€˜cityâ€™ is understood as a physical realm, a social realm, and animagined realm. In addition, the subject also critically investigates how imagined and real cities areinfluenced by popular media and technology, as well as cultural, environmental, economic, social,and political contexts. Students will be able to speculate upon the future of the polis, and their placein shaping or being shaped by the urban condition.Over the course of the semester, the subject will challenge you to consider what is important whenshaping a city and will frequently ask you to challenge status quo assumptions about the way ourcommunities, cities and countries function.Subject objectivesAt the end of the subject, you will be confident and competent in your critical ability to:1. Overview historical and contemporary views of cities and civilisations as utopian ordystopian.2.

Communicate the extent to which real cities are reflective of imagined utopias and theimplications for imaging city futures today.5. Be familiar with cultural, environmental, economic, social, technological, and politicalcontexts of urbanism historically, today and in the future city.6.
