Summer School: ‘Urban imaginary – exploring our urban futures’

Shift, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, and the Cost Association would like to invite you to the Summer School “Urban imaginary – exploring our urban futures” hosted by the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities of the Nova University in Lisbon, Portugal, 3-7 July 2023.

The goal of this summer school is to provide participants with theoretical and practical knowledge on transdisciplinarity, transformation and regeneration in urban space. The chosen approach for this course integrates arts-based and experiential learning practices with theoretical knowledge. The summer school will offer a space to explore how to navigate between perceived polarities and seeming contradictions to create new, regenerative imaginaries of the future. Be prepared for some fun and also for some deep reflection, all informed with powerful theory!

The summer school is conceptualized as a transdisciplinary learning space. It will offer a balanced program of lectures, interactive sessions and experiential field trips in Lisbon provided by experienced and internationally renowned trainers and researchers including Marcus Bussey, Maya Van Leemput, and Liam Mayo.

Travel grants are available for 12 participants. The grants cover travel costs up to 350 EUR and a daily allowance of 100 EUR/day. Participants based in Portugal are not eligible for the grants. Requests for the grants must be done until 28 February. Apply for the summer school here.

The Summer school is co-organised and supported by the European Cost Action “SHiFT – Social Sciences and Humanities for Transformation and Climate Resilience”.
