Oct: Getting Out Into the Street

Getting Out Into the Street - Young Researchers writing for Berlin’s homeless magazine “Die Stütze”

Presenting scientific research results in understandable language to a wider audience is one of the goals of the young researchers at the Transatlantic Research Program. As part of an initial cooperation with the Berlin-based homeless magazine “Die Stütze” [“Stütze” means “support,” “prop” or “backup” but is also a slang term for dole], they developed a feature section on urban topics as part of the October 2005 issue. A future cooperation and further individual contributions are intended.
 
We are pleased about the cooperation with the editor of “Die Stütze”, Uwe Kunz!

Old and New Dimensions of Integrating the 20th-Century Metropolis.”
