Rury introduces and highlights the most significant and classic essays dealing with urban schooling in this collection. Touching upon each of the country's principal geographic regions, Urban Education in the United States provides an introduction to critical themes in the history of city schools, framing each section with an overview of the major issues in urban education during particular periods in US history. This is an essential collection for students in urban education, the history of education, and American history.
The Urban Uncanny explores through ten engaging essays the slippage or mismatch between our expectations of the city-as the organised and familiar environments in which citizens live, work, and go about their lives-and the often surprising and unsettling experiences it evokes. The city is uncanny when it reveals itself in new and unexpected light; when its streets, buildings, and people suddenly appear strange, out of place, and not quite right.
Bringing together a variety of approaches, including psychoanalysis, historical and contemporary case study of cities, urban geography, film and literary critique, the essays explore some of the unsettling mismatches between city and citizen in order to make sense of each, and to gauge the wellbeing of city life more generally. Essays examine a number of cities, including Edmonton, London, Paris, Oxford, Las Vegas, Berlin and New York, and address a range of issues, including those of memory, death, anxiety, alienation, and identity. Delving into the complex repercussions of contemporary mass urban development,The Urban Uncanny opens up the pathological side of cities, both real and imaginary.
This interdisciplinary collection provides unparalleled insights into the urban uncanny that will be of interest to academics and students of urban studies, urban geography, psychoanalysis, cultural studies, social studies and film studies, and to anyone interested in the darker side of city life.
