For two summers I have taught in a Summer Program in Urban Studies at the University of Vienna. The program is geared toward graduate students at the masters and doctoral level who are working on urban topics. Most of the students come from European universities, but some also come from North America, East Asia, and the Middle East. We provide an intensive one-week course focused on critical engagements with urban public space, using Vienna as a site for exploring the themes and carrying out projects. My colleagues include John Mollenkopf, Suzi Hall, Christiane Hintermann, Yvonne Franz, and others.
