Teaching Urban Politics at an Albanian University: How Do You Make an American Sub-Discipline Internationally Relevant?
Dilworth, Richardson
Teaching in Higher Education, v13 n1 p69-80 Feb 2008
This article compares American and Albanian college students' urban political experiences in order to understand the relevance of American models of urban politics to developing nations. Urban growth in Albania has created needs for teaching students about urban governance. The evidence presented here suggests that Albanians' conceptions of urban problems probably lend themselves to political activism. The challenge is to create models for teaching urban politics that are more relevant to students in developing nations. (Contains 2 tables.)
