INTERNATIONAL PHD SEMINAR 2022
The International PhD Seminar Post-extraction territories in transition: Designing the socio-ecological transition in post-carbon marginal spaces proposes a European and transatlantic dialogue around the questions of the social and ecological transition (post-carbon) of marginal spaces, namely the territories of exploitation as the ancient coal territories on the two sides of the Atlantic.
The Seminar aims to provide initial cartography of the current research on critical scenarios of post-extraction and marginal spaces. It is an initiative of the Habitat Research Center, ENAC EPFL, as part of the doctoral study plan of the EDAR program (EPFL Doctoral School – EDOC) and will give access to 2 ETCS credits.
The Seminar is addressed to doctoral students in the fields of Architecture, Urbanism, Urban History, Landscape, Geography, Engineering, and Environmental Sciences, as well as Humanities, Political and Social Sciences.
