UrbRel Workshop “Typologising Cities. Critical Reflections” 17.05.22

In the workshop, we want to follow the question what we gain and what we lose when we assign certain cities to a category based on a supposed main characteristic or function. Are city types applicable only in their respective regional context? After all, what would be the European equivalent of an Indian ‘temple town’? Which alternative terms can we use for engaging comparatively with cities? To this aim, papers with comparative ambitions and/or proposing rectifications of received categories are more welcome than mere case studies or historiographical overviews.

Confirmed speakers include Judit Majorossy, Susanne Rau, Martin Christ and Sara Keller. If you would like to participate, please contact Dr. Dr. Emiliano Rubens Urciuoli: Emiliano.urciuoli@urbrel
