About the Programme
This summer the University of Copenhagen offers three different summer schools on urban studies:
URBAN CULTURE IN THEORY AND ACTION
During this summer school in the heart of Copenhagen, students from across the world get an opportunity to move from analysing problems in urban societies to creating possible solutions and identifying potentials in urban space by formulating and planning research-based projects.
Dates: 30. July 2020 – 20 August 2020 Credit: 15 ECTS Level: BA/MA
CULTURAL PRODUCTION AND URBAN SPACE
This summer school puts cultural production and event-making in urban space under the analytical scrutiny of critical urban theory. The aim of the summer school is to enable students to examine and assess the role of the cultural industry, broadly speaking, within existing political paradigms of urban development such as “creative cities”, “liveability” and “the experience economy” of cities.
Dates: 06 August 2020 – 19 August 2020 Credit: 7,5 ECTS Level: BA/MA
HERITAGE PROTECTION IN URBAN CONFLICTS
During this summer school, students from across the world get an opportunity to learn and discuss the practical solutions to the main risks to cultural heritage in modern urban conflict, giving them the tools to formulate their own research-project on this issue.
Dates: 03 August 2020 – 14 August 2020 Credit: 7,5 ECTS Level: BA/MA
