Between 2009-2012 we received, with colleagues at Portland State University, the University of Bologna, and the University of Nottingham, a FIPSE-European Union Atlantis grant to explore the complex problems and challenges facing European and American cities in the new “Metro Millennium”. The objective was to develop a shared curriculum among partner institutions for studying urban transformations that is broader and stronger than any one institution could offer on its own. The project involved the exchange of students and faculty between US and European partners. The exchanges were intended to promote multiple disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives on urban problems, and cross-fertilization of European and American approaches to understanding the city and the meaning of engaged citizenship.
