How is the City Written
For this assessment you are required to produce a 2,500 word essay in which you answer the question ‘how is the city written?’
The title is deliberately broad. It enables you to examine at greater length any single idea or set of ideas that you come across during your reading, discussions and
further research. You might compare and contrast two theorists who understand the city as a ‘social text’ for instance; or you might explore the contemporary political
implications of avant garde writing about the city – such as the Situationists, etc…
To give you an indication of what is expected of you in terms of ‘engagement’, ‘evidence’, ‘understanding’ and ‘quality’, examples of student work from previous years
will be made available as attached addition files in my account
