5th RC21-IJURR-FURS Summer School in Comparative Urban Studies

Event type: Other Urban
Date: 30/08/2017

The Research Committee 21 (RC21) of the International Sociology Association, the International Journal of Urban and Regional Research (IJURR), the Foundation for Urban and Regional Studies (FURS), University College London (Bartlett School of Planning) and Leeds University (Sociology/Geography) invite applications for 25 places on our fifth collaborative School on Comparative Urban Studies, to be held in London and Leeds (UK) from August 30 to September 13 2017. The School is being held in conjunction with the RC21 Conference on the theme of “Rethinking urban global justice” to be held on September 11-13, 2017.

The Summer School is aimed at PhD students at the beginning of their doctoral studies (1st or 2nd year ideally), who have not yet finished conducting their field work; and possibly at students finishing a research master and planning to continue with doctoral studies. It is not suitable for students who are at the end of their PhD studies, as it focuses on introducing and discussing the use of various research methods and the development of comparisons in urban studies.
