The Interdisciplinary Centre for Urban Culture and Public Space (SKuOR) at the Faculty of Architecture and Planning, Vienna University of Technology, Austria, has recently launched a Call for Expressions of Interest regarding a short-term City of Vienna Visiting Professorship 2013. According to the annual theme of 2013 “Urban culture, public space and knowledge – Education and difference”, he/she will be engaged with various aspects of the mental production of public space. The central question in the annual theme of 2013 (March 1, 2013 to February 2014) is the role of knowledge production within cultural, social and political changes in society and spatial constitution. This can be used as a starting point in urban research about knowledge as a resource as well as for a critical reflection about the relevance and perspectives of education and difference in spatial development.
The Visiting Professor is asked to cooperate with the direction of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Urban Culture and Public Space as an academic team. Accordingly, a luminary in contemporary social science based urban research (Know Why), or an expert in experimental and innovation-oriented research and teaching relating to urban design and planning (Know How) will work together with the established team in Vienna to develop a joint research, teaching, and networking program at the European level.
She/he will develop her/his particular focus at the interface between theory and practice in the combined thematic fields of urban culture and public space to foster critical methods and a constructive understanding towards more explorative and innovative approaches in urban design, urban planning and urban research. She/he should have previously held an assistant, associate, or full professor position and should be authorized to supervise doctoral students. The short-term position is offered for the academic year 2013 (1st March 2013 until 28th February 2014).
