Description

The Buildings-Landscapes-Cultures Field School offers students an unconventional mode of learning through immersion in the everyday life of a neighborhood. The 2014 BLC Field School program took place in the historic neighborhood of Washington Park, Milwaukee. The immersion of students in the neighborhood’s history and current reality gives students a unique perspective on the realities of everyday life within the neighborhood. Complex social issues, or what social theorist Horst Rittel calls “wicked problems” (160), present in Washington Park challenged students to co-create “resolutions” (160 Rittel) in partnership with neighborhood residents. Working in tandem, the BLC Field School students and neighborhood partners sought to give a voice to this Milwaukee neighborhood.
