Urban Cultural Studies blog
urbanculturalstudies.wordpress.com is an interdisciplinary, multi-authored blog dedicated to the culture(s) of cities…space, time and urban everyday life the world over.
The site is characterized by short, readable, informative posts–ideally accompanied by several images and links–relevant to the growing interest in urban cultural studies across fields such as geography, sociology, anthropology, language and literature fields, area studies, film studies, media studies and more…
The blog also features calls for papers as well as information about upcoming workshops and conferences to those working on cities across both the humanities and the social sciences.
This multi-authored blog accompanies an interdisciplinary and international journal on urban cultural studies with a well-known publisher specializing in humanities and social science research–and it aims to foster an online community of scholars interested in the culture(s) of cities from all disciplines, including both geographers/urban studies researchers and those from language and literature fields.
Please contact the blog’s administrator (Dr. Benjamin Fraser) with any items of interest or questions at urbanculturalstudies[at]gmail.com [I am Professor and Chair of the Foreign Languages and Literatures Department at East Carolina University]. You can also visit my personal site [link in progress] for more information. I’m also currently a Senior Editor of this journal that has published a number of articles on urban cultural studies over the years.]
