Urban and Regional Studies
I might have forgotten to give a more detailed insight in how the research school is organised and what I mean when talking about "we". Well, the idea of the interdisciplinary research school " Urban and Regional Studies" is that PhD students and researchers learn from each other's research in different disciplines. There are about 24 members of the research school and the closely linked Center of Urban and Regional Studies. The people that I work most closely with are the other 6 new PhD students: Peter, Human Geographer, Susanna and Maja (both Sociologists), Anna-Lisa (Political Scientist), Andreas (Historian) and Marcus (Social Work Scientist). Those are also the people that take the course "The city in its context". Together with two other courses, seminars and conferences this is the common basis of the PhD students at URS.
