Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The general aim of Urban Analysis III (UA3) is to add to the toolbox of methods developed in UA1 and UA2, and to prepare students to conduct independent research for their Master’s thesis. The focus is on qualitative and interpretive approaches: document analysis, interviewing, and visual analysis. Special attention is paid to the use of coding in collecting and analyzing qualitative data. Methods are put into practice (and context) through a semester-long group project that interrogates strategic urban planning in Vienna as a form of discursive governance. The final exam consists of a group presentation and written report.
