The Cities Seminar is a monthly meeting organized by the University of Amsterdam. This years theme is ‘New Directions in Urbanism’ which aims at, among many other things, a (critical) investigation of new urban forms and new concepts in urban theory. The seminar consists of a number of guest speakers and close-reading sessions. Prof. Gary Bridge (Centre for Urban Studies, Bristol University) will be the first to give a lecture. Enrolment is, as far as I know, still possible. Read more on the Cities Seminar here.
