Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Living is a social practice associated with concrete places. The "Forschungspraktikum" is interested in the materiality of living (specifically, places of living in the changing fabric of the city) in connection with the (also changing) meanings of living. The seminar adresses a list of adresses in Vienna. The aim is an empirical analysis of the change of places and the changing discourse about their function (living), be it in research, official documents, literary texts or narratives of residents.
The research internship combines urban, spatial and socio-sociological perspectives and is oriented towards a pluralistic research design.
Applieds methods: ethnographic urban exploration, document analysis, interviews.
