Today, I received the course syllabus and schedule for the first course, called "The City in its context". It's a ten week course and we'll have a seminar every second week. Theme for the first seminar is "The city as a research object". Books I'm chasing now are Handbook of Urban Studies by Ronan Paddison (ed.) and The City Reader, by Richard LeGates and Frederic Stout (ed.s). We'll have a slow start, as we only read 100 pages for the first seminar. By the looks of the schedule though, the second seminar requires us to read 1200 pages. I'd better start right away!
