The Journal of Urban Cultural Studies invites submission of abstracts to be included in the interactive short paper session -described below- at the Association of American Geographers Conference on April 3-7, 2020 in Denver, Colorado.
The Urban Cultural Studies session features innovative research that connects urban geography and cultural studies to improve our understanding of urban culture(s). The submissions will explore aspects of urban studies and its relationship with textual forms of culture such as literature, film, graphic novels, music, graffiti, videogames, etc. This session is linked to the Journal of Urban Cultural Studies (Intellect Books) and its accompanying blog and podcast series at urbanculturalstudies.wordpress.com.
Following the model of a ‘lightning round session,’ each of the 10-14 panelists in the Urban Cultural Studies session will present a 5-minute summary of research or studies in process. A 30 to 45-minute interactive roundtable discussion will follow the presentations. In order to submit an abstract, register for the conference here:
