The Journal of Urban Cultural Studies (JUCS) is pleased to announce its permanent call for papers for authors working on cultural productions and urban studies. JUCS is a peer-refereed, international journal that blends humanities and social science approaches to the culture(s) of cities. The journal is open to studies that deal with culture, urban spaces, and forms of urbanized consciousness from all over the world.
JUCS is particularly interested in submissions that give equal weight to: a) one or more aspects of urban studies, and b) the analysis of one or more specific forms of cultural/textual production in relation to a given urban space or spaces. JUCS publishes both research articles and short-form articles. Research articles (7,000 to 10,000 words, including references and notes) are the hallmark of the journal and represent an original contribution to the field. JUCS also publishes short-form articles of 2,500–4,000 words.
Short-form articles can take many forms: interviews, analyses of art installations, review essays (pitched globally and discussing at least three book titles) or discussions of theoretical debates and interdisciplinary issues relating to urban cultural studies. Please notice that the journal does not publish ‘book reviews.’ JUCS is also interested in receiving proposals for special issues by guest editors working individually or in teams of two, and original, unpublished artwork on the topic of cities. Journal contributors will receive a free PDF copy of their final work upon publication. Print copies of the journal may also be purchased by contributors at half price.
