The IJURR Studies in Urban and Social Change Book Series is being relaunched this year. It shares IJURR’s commitments to critical, global, and politically relevant analyses of our urban worlds. The IJURR-SUSC series offers a distinctive platform for original studies with wide relevance to urban studies scholars from different disciplines. Books in this series bring forward innovative theoretical approaches and present rigorous empirical work, deepening understandings of urbanization processes but also advancing critical insights in support of political action and change.
We are committed to publishing studies with themes and formats which reflect the many different voices and practices in the field of urban studies. This might include case studies of single places, accounts of specific urban challenges or policy responses, analyses of urbanisation processes from particular regional perspectives, larger-scale studies or comparisons across East and West, North and South, or conceptually innovative and sustained theoretical contributions The series is explicitly interdisciplinary; the editors judge books by their contribution to the broad field of urban studies rather than according to disciplinary origin. Lastly, the IJURR-SUSC Editors appreciate the theoretically eclectic nature of the field. It is a strength that we embrace and encourage.
The IJURR Studies in Urban and Social Change Editors are always interested in proposals for new books in the series. Please review the IJURR-SUSC book proposal guidelines for more information. Please address any queries, or email your proposal for consideration, to the Book Series Editor-in-Chief, Walter J. Nicholls, at [email protected].
