Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The aim of the course is to understand ethnic retail as an economic, cultural and social phenomenon taking place in contemporary multicultural cities. During the course students engage in relevant literatures on immigrant entrepreneurs and ethnic retail, and discuss them in relation to developments in Vienna. Students are divided into groups of 2-3 students and research ethnic retail in Vienna from a perspective of their own choice. To inform their study, students conduct fieldwork, read policy documents, make interviews and relate their results to the existing literature. After the course, students will be able to map an urban phenomenon and relate it to the research literature, and more specifically, understand the potential of ethnic retail for place making and integration of immigrants and identify and describe the possibilities and limitations of ethnic retail for urban regeneration.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Students will be assed based on the grade of their performance in class and group work. Grades will be based on the following:Attendance and participation (20 %), oral presentation (30 %), peer feedback (10 %) and seminar paper (40 %).

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

This course is suitable for students who are interested in deepening their knowledge in an urban phenomenon by engaging in literatures around it, and further test, challenge, verify and/or expand their knowledge about the phenomenon in the real world. The course is taught in English, so a requirement is sufficient language skills. Minimum requirements for participation include active participation. Exceptions to the presence requirement can be made in cases of sickness or other urgent matters, but must be communicated to the teacher and compensated.

Prüfungsstoff

The topics of the group works will be decided during the first weeks of the course.
