Georg Simmel Center

The Georg Simmel Center for Metropolitan Studies (GSZ) is an interdisciplinary platform to coordinate research on cities at Humboldt University (HU). Its foundations are the Geography Department, the Institute for European Ethnology and the Institute of Sociology at HU. The center coordinates activities in research and teaching both within HU and with partner institutions or other universities at national and international level. It aims to make a primal and interdisciplinary contribution to research on the development of metropolises and cities. During the semester, Urban and Regional Sociology Department at HU organises the weekly Think&Drink Colloquium in cooperation with GSZ.
