The UrbanMetaMapping Research Consortium warmly invites you to our online, midday academic talks on issues connected to our research interests on mapping man-made and natural catastrophes, heritage, urban planning, and digital tools used for researching these.
The researchers of the UrbanMetaMapping are not only focused on their own research, but are also interested in learning from other scholars, in debating ideas and concepts and engraining in scholarly exchange. This was the reason why we decided to open up our seminars to the external guests and the wider public.
The UrbanMetaMapping Seminar Series focuses on topics of mapping man-made and natural catastrophes, heritage, urban planning, and digital tools used for researching these. This reflects the interdisciplinary character of our group and is aimed at providing us with new insights into those topics. We hope that those encounters will be also interesting and beneficial for other like-minded scholars.
It’s not a secret that academics don’t have much time, so even exciting events and inspiring papers are sometimes missed due to the lack of time. This is precisely why we decided to make our Semester Talks concise: one hour (including Q&A) at midday, once a month (every third Wednesday). We hope that this format is manageable for interested scholars, but at the same time give enough time to engage in a meaningful conversation of topics that drive our research.
We look forward to you joining us for the UrbanMetaMapping Seminar Series!
