This upcoming summer semester URRlab welcomes all Erasmus and Czech students and offers two courses taught in English. The registration is open.
Urban Social Geography: Contemporary Issues is for students interested in finding out the contemporary trends and issues in urban social geography. The students will have the opportunity to study urban occurrences and processes and to compare those with cases in Prague and other European cities. The course offers its participants lectures, discussions, group work, film seminar, field trips and the opportunity to carry out their own research. The lessons will be held at the Faculty of Science on Thursdays from 9 am.
Discussion Seminar on Contemporary Urban Studies, new course starting this year, focuses on exploring the phenomena and processes in contemporary cities and analyzing and explaining them in their local context and relationship with different urban actors. The main objective is to promote students’ critical thinking and introduce them to a broader spectre of urban issues through alternative teaching methods. The lectures will be held at the Faculty of Science on Wednesdays from 10:40 am.
