In the next academic year, you can look forward to the course “Urban Regulations and Political Memory: Towards Understanding Spatio-Temporal Aspects of Urban Development” organized within 4EU +. This interdisciplinary course is being prepared by three universities: University of Warsaw, University of Milan and Charles University.
Lecture „Urban transformation processes. Gentrification. Suburbanisation“ will be led by members of our team Martin Ouředníček a Adél Petrović. The entire course will be held in English and those interested can send their CVs and cover letters by 8 September 2021 to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Key topics of the course are driving forces of urban changes, the development of smart cities and interdisciplinary methodologies of urban studies. The project concerns changes in the conditions of the urban development of smart cities in Poland, Italy and Czech Republic, according to three dimensions: past (history), present (law) and future (geography), emphasizing an integrated and interdisciplinary approach in order to understand the complexity of new urban centers in which real estate development must coexist with the protection of the environment and with the history and heritage of the local community.
