Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In this lecture, theoretical concepts of urban research are addressed by implementing concrete research projects. Students will be guided to develop their own empirical work on current urban geographical research questions (development of research design and methodology, implementation, presentation of results) in small groups.
The general topic of the course (city image and urban identity in different spatial and socio-economic contexts, perception, city marketing, over-tourism) is conceptualized, operationalized and implemented together with the students using different empirical methods (mental maps, observation, document analysis, evaluation of secondary data).
The final presentation of results will take place in an interactive workshop format together with UE Stadtgeographie (Gruppe B).
