Like an online textbook, but better
Dr. Elvin Wyly is a fantastic Urban Studies professor teaching at the University of British Columbia in the Geography Department. Not only is he an interesting lecturer, but he’s also a great writer. Best of all, he posts all his class notes online so anyone can read them:
I highly recommend investigating his PDFs for summaries on a variety of urban studies topics ranging from gentrification to voting patterns.
Plus check out his great Occupy photos!
