Are you a grad student or a young professional interested in urban political ecology? Koç University offers exactly what you need this summer! This program is not only a chance of having a very interesting and intense global academic experience with a hands-on approach to the city, but also of discovering a dynamic, vibrant, attractive city like Istanbul.
3 weeks of theoretical readings on urban political ecology, talks with guest academicians and activists on concrete issues, and field trips along hot routes e.g. Kanal Istanbul and areas of urban transformation such as the surroundings of the Golden Horn.
The summer school is structured around three main methodological axis:
- Co-learning via lectures, guest lectures and student presentations
- Participatory observations via field trips
- Reflection via co-production of a publication on Istanbul
You can earn either 6 ECTS credits or a certificate at the end of the course.
