Interdisciplinary Summer School "The Idea of the City: Reality Check"

We invite you to submit your applications to participate in an interdisciplinary summer school “The Idea of the City: Reality Check” to take place during June 29 – July 11, 2016, in Slavutych.

The summer school in Slavutych is an opportunity to analyze the process of making a city, starting with an idea, through discussions and solutions, planning, and construction and up to developing spaces and buildings, functioning of institutions and everyday life.

The goal of an interdisciplinary summer school is to combine learning and research formats while using integrated approaches and methods of different disciplines in urban studies. The school curriculum will include social, humanitarian, environmental and economic prospects in planning and functioning of a modern city, also with the account for historical contexts.

Deadline for applications: May 10, 2016.

Organizers: Heinrich Boell Foundation’s Office in Ukraine, Center for Urban History and the NGO Urban Forms Center.
