Working Group


URBAN DWELLINGS is a Berlin-based interdisciplinary working group which emerged through various collaborations in the framework of the BUA-funded joint research project “Beyond Social Cohesion - Global Repertoires of Living Together (RePLITO)” and RePLITO’s cooperation with Off-University. Off-University has its base in Germany and was established for and by scholars from Turkey yet addresses itself to threatened academics all over the world.

The working group URBAN DWELLINGS brings together researchers of all levels, from different disciplinary as well as personal backgrounds. It allows them to share their theoretical and methodological approaches to the interrelated questions of housing, dwelling, and living (well) together in plural and highly unequal societies. It provides a space where they can present and discuss their new research as well as publication projects.
