Urban Cultural Studies [new multi-authored, interdisciplinary blog-General Announcement]

full name / name of organization: 
urbanculturalstudies.wordpress.com

urbanculturalstudies.wordpress.com is a new interdisciplinary, multi-authored blog on 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.

The site 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.

Please contact the blog's administrator (Dr. Benjamin Fraser at The College of Charleston) with any items of interest or questions at urbanculturalstudies@gmail.com.

This blog is a precursor to the formation of a new 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.
