Rotterdam Urban Lectures
Erasmus University College

Erasmus University College is launching a new public lecture series on cities and urban issues. All are invited to attend. We have a program of distinguished scholars from the Netherlands and beyond who will be giving informative and accessible lectures aimed at stimulating debate and challenging some of the dominant narratives about cities. These events are free and you do not need to register. We look forward to welcoming you to Erasmus University College in the heart of Rotterdam!
