Description

Urban planning is a technical and political process concerned with the use of land, protection and use of the environment, public welfare, and the design of the urban environment, including air, water, and the infrastructure passing into and out of urban areas such as transportation, communications, and distribution networks.[1] Urban Planning is also referred to as urban and regional, regional, town, city, rural planning or some combination in various areas worldwide. Urban planning takes many forms and it can share perspectives and practices with urban design.[2]

Urban planning guides and ensures the orderly development of settlements and satellite communities which commute into and out of urban areas or share resources with it. Urban planners in the field are concerned with research and analysis, strategic thinking, architecture, urban design, public consultation, policy recommendations, implementation and management.[3]

Urban Planners work with the cognate fields of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Civil Engineering, and Public Administration to achieve strategic, policy and sustainability goals. Early urban planners were often members of the these cognate fields. Today urban planning is a separate, independent professional discipline. The discipline is the broader category that includes many different sub-fields such as land-use planning, zoning, environmental planning, transportation planning, and Parks and Recreation.[4]

Course programme

Origin of city in history: The Ancient City. The Medieval City. The Modern Industrial city.
Theories of urban sociology: Classical: The classical sociological theorists grappled with the arrival of modern urbanism.They attempted to understand the very nature of the new industrial society that was transforming the European cities.
Contemporary: The contemporary sociological theories look at cities from the point of view of production, distribution and consumption of space. These theoretical approaches have been influenced largely by the ecological, cultural and political-economic perspective
Technology and urban life: It has been observed by historians that technological and urban developments are closely related processes. The use and impact of technology varies between urban and rural areas. This chapter will discuss, through case-studies, how technology moulds urban landscape as urban social life-as centres of education, as sources for capital and political power-impacts on technology
Poetics and politics of urban spaces: Sociologists have looked at different dimensions of urban spaces such as neighbourhood, ghetto, suburbs and the edge city. This chapter will explore, drawing on crosscultural case-studies, how urban spaces are the products of a number of social processes
Urban planning and design: City planning reflects the social structures and processes in any society. Modern urban planning had its origins in the reaction to the rapid and disorderly growth that characterized the latter part of the 19th century. This chapter will sensitize the student to appraise urban planning from a sociological perspective. The chapter will look at pre-imperial, colonial and post-independence Indian cities and show how city planning and larger social processes reinforce one another.
Rural, urban, 'rururban' and suburban: the future of urban sociology: In India the dichotomy between rural and urban has often been questioned by sociologists. It has been pointed out that the neologism 'rururban' captures the dynamics of Indian urbanism. This chapter will address such conceptual questions and review contemporary sociological studies on urbanization in India. It will also comment on possible areas of further research.
