It is astonishing that The Miraculous Mandarin’s scenes of urban decay and the pastoral of Evening with the Székelys, the almost brutal dissonances of the First Piano Concerto and the gentleness of Mikrokosmos could come from the pen of one man: Béla Bartók (1881-1945), one of the most celebrated composers of the twentieth century and one of the founding fathers of the discipline of ethnomusicology.

East Central European Cities in Comparative Perspective

This course uses readings from cultural history and urban sociology, literature, film, and the arts to shed light on the East-Central European urban experience from the early nineteenth century to the present. Cities in this region share a common experience of transformation of urban space from modernization in the late nineteenth century (mostly under foreign rule), independence and further development between the wars, rebuilding and expansion under state socialism and Soviet hegemony after WWII and new kinds of rebuilding and expansion since 1989.
