This podcast was developed in conjunction with a course offered in the Fall 2020 semester through the History Department. The course explored housing, and its legal, social and political meanings, as a concept that can only be fully understood as a historical phenomenon. Using examples from cities around the world, these episodes feature archival and oral history research as they delve into stories that get to the bigger picture about how, throughout the world, the provision of shelter for urban populations has been at the center of urban crises and conflicts, as well as their solutions.
