The aim of this course is to describe what “housing insecurity” is and examine known causes and responses in New York City. To do so, we will read about several key events in New York City’s housing history, including the rise of public housing, squatting, and urban homesteading. Next, we will study present challenges, notably climate change and the city’s lack of affordable housing. Lastly, layered on top of past and present events and challenges, we will see what happens when we treat housing as a “right,” “commodity,” “solution,” and more. In addition to relevant research and scholarship, we will also study archival documents and oral histories.
