Advisory Board

We are very proud to have gained outstanding researchers for our Advisory Board for the next three years. These colleagues will accompany our research giving us orientation, discussing with us as internal interlocutors and enriching our project with their own contributions:

  • Harald Bodenschatz, Technische Universität Berlin, Germany

  • Mariusz Czepczyński, Uniwersytet Gdański, Poland

  • Peter J. Larkham, Birmingham City University, Great Britain

  • Eliana Perotti, ETH Zürich, Switzerland

  • Àlvaro Sevilla Buitrago, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain

  • Charlotte Vorms (member of Advisory Board 2017-2019), Université de Paris I, Panthéon-Sorbonne, France

  • José Luis Oyón (member of Advisory Board from 2019), Catalonia Polytechnic University, Spain.

In this way we strengthen the pan-European character of urbanHIST, extend our network integrating renowned universities and round our academic setting with Sociology and Town Planning, Cultural Geography, Art History, Town Planning and Urban studies, Economic and Social History. In order to communicate better their academic profile, we asked them to refer two publications:
