University of Vienna Urban Studies Summer School
Last week, FAC PhD Researcher Aoife Doyle took part in the University of Vienna‘s Urban Studies Summer School 2016.
‘Understanding Public Spaces: Unravelling Complexities‘, was the title of the course, which aimed to address the challenge of analysing the fragmented needs and practices of a heterogeneous urban society, including those groups affected by exclusion from city life and public space.
This is a topic close to FAC’s HORIZON 2020 research interests and wider project activities. Keynote speakers on the two-week course included Suzanne Hall (LSE), Joseph Heathcott (New School NY) and Sabine Knierbein (TU Vienna).
