Course Description

MIT 3224F-650 (Summer 2024)   Crash Landscapes

Instructor: W. Steele

Course Description
Our reliance on private transport has produced a landscape dominated by the automobile: an environment to which we are culturally blind. This course is not a strict history of the car. It is a sustained examination of how a particular technology can become intertwined with a society’s political and economic processes.

Antirequisites: MIT 2410G if taken in 2009-10, or MIT 2411G in 2010-11 or MIT 2411F in 2011-12 or the former MIT 2309F/G.
