Our 2022 annual conference was planned as an interdisciplinary event of with innovative format including three parts: a theoretical part on conceptual tools widely used by the KFG, a World Café and lightening talks. It took place in Ettersburg castle (Weimar) and continued on the results of two summer workshops. The conference looked at the concept of urbanity and its possible variations. How do we live (together) in dense urban spaces? How has urbanity been defined so far, how can we contribute to better grasp and describe it?
Diana Pavel, PhD student at the University of Erfurt in a cotutelle with Graz University has written a report on our most recent workshop: “Metamorphoses of Urbanities: Grasping Differences” (organisers: Susanne Rau, Jörg Rüpke).
