Scientific content
Moving beyond the study of tangible linkages between particular rural and urban areas, the course explores how global dynamics, migration and legacies of rural and urban planning and change are connecting rural and urban transformations in specific ways. The course will critically examine the academic literature, and discuss the relevance of different research designs and methodologies to be applied in studies of rural-urban transformations.

Learning outcome:
PhD course equips students with the necessary skills to plan and design research to understand the connections between processes of rural and urban transformation.

Teaching and learning methods
The course is organized as a full one week course to take place from June 27 – July 1, 2016. The course will be held at IGN- Section of Geography (Copenhagen), Oester Voldgade 10.
