Section Description

In recent years the bicycle has enjoyed a renaissance as a form of sustainable urban transportation in many major cities throughout the world, primarily as governments and activists seek ways to reduce the social, health, and environmental problems caused by automobile pollution and congestion. This course examines the complex connections between globalization, cycling, and urban sustainability. These themes include: theorizing contemporary forms of urban mobility and how transportation technologies, specifically the bicycle, relate to social change; the dynamic history and role of the bicycle around the world (primarily Asia, Latin America, Europe, and North America) as a form of transportation; and the current adoption of the bicycle by urban environmental movements. We will take several bicycle fieldtrips around Burlington, and work in service learning with several local bicycle advocacy organizations.

Section Expectation

Combination of lectures, discussions, films, and bike fieldtrips around Burlington.


Students are graded on: Presentation about a reading; Essay on a transnational biography of a bicycle; Attendance and participation; and Service learning project.
