SINY 56: Business Innovation & Technology for Social Change

This course will explore how new types of business models and technologies can be used to address big global problems like poverty, inequality, and climate change. The COVID-19 pandemic underscored the vast disparities that exist in the United States including access to healthcare, education, technology, jobs and even food security, to name a few. Using NYC as our living laboratory, we will explore our communities that were most affected by the pandemic, question why, and explore sustainable solutions to the underlying causes.

SINY 109: Walking and Writing New York City

Navigating the streets and sidewalks of New York City is both an intensely personal and a complex collective experience. During your time in New York, you will do it nearly every day, and you will almost certainly find yourself describing it to others. This course will give you concepts to understand this activity in a broader context, and skills to undertake it more intentionally and effectively. How do people - sociologists, photographers, poets, urban planners, and ordinary New Yorkers - observe the streets, and how do they depict that experience? What do these observations tell us about ourselves, and about the possibilities and inequities of urban life? We will attempt to answer these questions through reading, watching, and listening to the works of New York walkers past and present, and through a close analysis of our own experiences of moving through the city.
