Content

This summer school puts cultural production and event-making in urban space under the analytical scrutiny of critical urban theory. The aim of the summer school is to enable students to examine and assess the role of the cultural industry, broadly speaking, within existing political paradigms of urban development such as “creative cities”, “liveability” and “the experience economy” of cities.

By means of theoretical perspectives and urban ethnographic methods, students will learn to analyse the symbolic, emotional and socioeconomic dimensions of cultural production in urban space through fieldwork and workshops organised in collaboration with our partners, including the music festival Strøm.

The summer school thus provides students with an opportunity to engage critically with experienced cultural producers operating in urban space and learn about the different problems, potentials and considerations connected to urban cultural production.

The summer school is centered on a case-based learning approach and through workshops, lectures and field trips the students will immerse in theoretical perspectives as well as public debate, learn from practitioners, and gain experience in analysing urban cultural production through case studies and fieldwork.

The course is offered through the Global Urban Studies Electives (urban.tors.ku.dk) and is open to all BA and MA-level students who will be awarded 7.5 ECTS upon passing the exam.
