Generously sponsored by the American Culture Studies Program (AMCS) at Washington University.

City Seminar is a forum in which scholars across disciplines and from colleges and universities in the St. Louis area can share ideas, research methods, theories and topics on anything related to urban studies in the United States and abroad. At each meeting, a scholar presents some work in progress and then we have an informal discussion of the work, accompanied by drinks and snacks.
We hope this forum will help to build an intellectual community around urban scholarship and urban politics.

A moot discussion:
St. Louis is gone. Most destructive, or most self-destructive city in the county with a handful obsessed with power and control have powered and controlled it into a dying town.
