New research project for 2020-2022

Monday brought a pre-Christmas present from the Czech Ministry of Culture to URRlab. We are delighted to announce that the team around Martin Ouředníček was awarded a 4-year grant for the project entitled Prague suburbs: the dynamics of social environment within the growing metropolis. In the project, we will delve into the history of Prague suburbs from industrialisation until the present day. Research in archives and the first cartographic use of some statistical data will produce a rich collection of data sets, specialised maps, an exhibition, and a bilingual atlas.
