We are in the middle of the last preparations for our upcoming KOSMOS Workshop “Beyond Urban Transformation” and very look forward to welcoming you very soon at Humboldt-University of Berlin at Georg Simmel Center for Metropolitan Studies.

Wishing all our participants and speakers safe travels. Enjoy your first days exploring Berlin!


The workshop will start with the public opening keynote “The city as promissory assemblage or: how to think and study the non-/transformative” by Prof. Alexa Färber tomorrow at 6 pm @ Georg-Simmel Center for Metropolitan Studies in Berlin.

Workshop participants and non-participants, everybody interested, is very welcome to come to the opening keynote lecture. Happy to meet you there!

Please note: Apart from the opening keynote the workshop is for registered participants only. We are very happy for the huge interest in the KOSMOS Workshop “Beyond Urban Transformation” in September in Berlin, Germany. At the moment we cannot consider any more requests or applications, as the deadline for submissions was in May 2018. We encourage everyone interested to apply for one of our future workshops.
