ToRS Urban Studies - Urban Culture Lab

Urban Culture Lab is a cross-faculty, interdisciplinary initiative to map, develop and publicize urban studies at Copenhagen University’s Faculty of Humanities. Through a series of "presentation" events, the various institutes will introduce their urban studies profile for the board and anyone interested, and now it is ToRS’ turn. We hope that you will all join us for interesting short presentations, a discussion of ToRS’ Urban Studies strategy followed by a glass of wine.
