Call for Applications

The Department of Geography and Spatial Research at the University of Vienna in cooperation with the Graduate Center at the City University New York will be hosting the first Vienna Summer School in Urban Studies
 from Monday 30th June to Monday 7th July 2014 in Vienna.
 
The Summer School will deal with the topic of
 Right to the City: Appropriations of Public Spaces in Transition
 
Urban public spaces are constantly changing and highly contested territories. The fields of action that have to be considered when analysing urban public spaces range from the impact of global trends like neoliberalism on new urban policies, to everyday appropriations at the local level. The relationship between macro trends and micro scale actions manifests itself in ongoing transition processes, located in urban public spaces which are both spaces of differences and arenas of interaction.

The Vienna Summer School in Urban Studies will focus on two key questions:

  • Who has a right to the city and the production and consumption of its public spaces?
  • Who is excluded from this right and why?

Application:
We are welcoming applications from Master and PhD Students from different research fields with a focus on Urban Studies.
