VL Urban Societies in Time and Space

Dorothee Brantz


Urban Societies in Time and Space  

Modul 3: Öffentlicher Raum und Stadtkultur


Di 12-14 Uhr • BIB 014 • Beginn 17.10.2017


What characterizes an urban society?  Why do we build cities?  Does nature still exist in the urban realm?  Do cities need destruction?  This lecture serves as an introduction to the MA program in Historical Urban Studies and its rich spectrum of topics.  Using a wide array of questions as our starting point, we will investigate major themes and concepts in interdisciplinary metropolitan studies, e.g., space & place, temporality & history, nature & and the urban environment, urban typologies, urban development & ideology, infrastructures & networks.  In each session we will devote our attention to a specific question in order to examine primarily the historical but also the contemporary implications of distinct urban developments.  The format will center on lectures with interspersed discussions. 


This seminar is held in English, but potential term papers (Hausarbeiten) can be submitted in English or German.  All students from other departments who are interested to participate in this course are welcome to attend.  Credits will be determined as needed in individual cases.
