Dear COST Action 18126 members of all WGs,
We are reaching out to you to pick your brains regarding methods and techniques to explore and communicate the city from a variety of disciplines. We are looking for methods and approaches to analyze, experience, capture and narrate the city.
In this first step, it may suffice to send us a term for an approach that you have encountered or applied, you don’t need to be fully acquainted with it and by doing so you don’t commit yourself to any further input.
Please submit your suggestions – eventually including an image, one sentence, a bibliographic reference, and/or a link – directly in the app prepared for that scope (no registration required!). Alternatively, you can send them by email to firstname.lastname@example.org until December 31, 2020.
Naturally, more detailed entries are also welcome (in that case, please include references to the authors, objectives, instruments, socio-political contexts, and places where the methods were implemented, as well as to problems and outcomes). In any case, you may always express your willingness to elaborate on it and/or to volunteer for writing an entry on it in our planned Repository of Methods for Writing Urban Places.
Once we have collected your suggestions and ideas (which may include very experimental, uncanonical and hybrid and as yet undocumented approaches), we will carefully look at them, and develop a well-structured set-up for presenting them in the Repository of Methods and decide on a format for the entries. As we don’t expect long descriptions or complete write-ups but just short suggestions we would hope to receive these before the end of this year.
