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. See the peer-reviewed Journal of Urban Cultural Studies, an Intellect publication, for similar content.
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.
