Where: Antwerp, Belgium

Conveners: Urban Studies Institute, University of Antwerp

Between 31 August – 4 September 2015 the Antwerp Urban Studies Institute will be hosting its third summer school: CityLAB III: The Productive City.

This one-week intensive course aims to discuss the productive role of cities from an interdisciplinary perspective. Participants will set out to analyse how and why urban material production disappeared and what the consequences are. Subsequently, they will examine and discuss if material production should keep its place in the city. Inevitably, new forms of sustainable production as urban food production, urban small industrial production, and urban craftsmanship will be addressed. In addition, they will examine and discuss new ideas about the relationship between working and living and modes of transport, and related concepts and practices of urban planning.

Confirmed speakers are amongst others Prof. dr. Ewald Engelen (University of Amsterdam), Prof. dr. Valentine Cadieux, (University of Minnesota), Prof. dr. Michele Acuto, (UCL London), Prof. dr. Andrew Harris, PhD, (UCL London) and Prof. dr. Bruno Blondé (University of Antwerp).

More information can be found on the University of Antwerp website.

The application deadline is 1 July 2015.
