This lecture will provide a general overview about principles in urban research. It will cover subjects related to the theory of science, the logics and paradigms of research, different procedures of research, methodological discourses and ethics of research. The lecture will be organized by firstly providing a lecture in a traditional style and secondly with practical exercises. This course requires compulsory reading and writing between the meeting dates and will thus be organized only every two weeks.

Media, Urban Context and Social Practices

Today, media create opportunities for diverse forms of connections between people and spaces, enabling and forming flows of information. New digital places for information and communication emerge, and the context of existing spaces is transformed by the joint impact of media and architecture, thus leading to new forms of social and cultural practices. The public sphere, the communication in ubiquitous networks, and the interaction with digital content will be a thematic focus. The conference addresses different approaches and methods of research. It will consist of three sessions and a workshop, exploring these themes in a focused way.
