30.11.20 | TCR lecture series on ‘Urban Transformation’

Wednesday, 10.45 – 12.15 pm, winter semester 2020/21

The module presents dynamics of urban areas in Europe and beyond, discusses in this context a new definition of the city and elaborates contemporary processes shaping cities and urban areas. These dynamics of change play out in many different arenas including the physical and territorial. They are driven by demographic, socio-economic, environmental and political changes and developments.

The models explaining the nature and consequences of this change form an important part of the module as well as theories aiming at explaining them. This module focuses on the city, regional and urban network scales, including various aspects of urban transformation, such as changing mobility patterns, heritage and culture of cities, emerging technologies, government and governance, social infrastructure, energy transition among others.
