[en] Night Studies – Current Research Approaches

The broad field of Night & Nightlife Studies has only gained attention in recent years – especially within the approach of spatial science. Not least because the nocturnal city and its social, economic, and cultural implications – as well as its influence on urban spaces – raise specific questions and problems on multiple social and political levels.

The panel presents an overview of current research approaches within the Night Studies field and aims to bring together academics and night owls alike.
