Many of the scholars involved in the Second World Urbanity project not only research and write about the history of socialist cities but also teach courses (or parts of courses) on the topic. This section of our blog is devoted to exchanging ideas about our pedagogical approaches to teaching the history of architecture, urban planning, and the everyday in cities of the Second World. If you have a syllabus to share, ideas for primary sources to use, research assignments and digital projects to share, or suggestions for secondary sources and theoretical works to include in such courses, please leave a comment on the relevant sub-pages of this section and/or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to include materials in languages other than English in your suggestions.
