December 1, 2017

Guest Editors: David Poveda, Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (Spain) and Lígia Ferro, Universidade do Porto (Portugal)

This special edition explores research into how young people experience and act in the urban spaces in which they live, and how they recreate them to build today’s contemporary cities. We are particularly interested in papers using participatory methodologies and new ways of documenting and investigating with and about young people and adolescents in the city. Such methodologies include participatory action research projects, visual, multimodal and sense-based methodologies and/or the use of digital resources. Qualitative and/or ethnographic studies examining the experiences and voices of young people and adolescents in urban contexts are also welcomed.

We are looking for articles that capture a diverse range of social, economic, cultural and institutional factors that condition contemporary youth and adolescence. In selecting the papers for publication, particular attention will be given to the overall geographical and cultural diversity of the papers as a whole. At the same time, we are aiming to present a highly interdisciplinary view of the youth-city convergence, and welcome proposals from psychology, sociology, anthropology, pedagogy, geography, history, linguistics, arts and humanities, among others, and in particular, contributions that embrace dialogue among several of these disciplines.

Possible themes:
Young people and urban public space
Young people constructing urban cultures
Institutional and out-of-school spaces for/belonging to young people
Migrations, youth and urban inclusion/exclusion
Exclusion and social policies on youth and the city
Gender, social class and ethnicity as dimensions of urban youth’s experiences
Collaborative-participative methodology
Audio-visual, multimodal and sense-based methodologies

Authors wishing to contribute can send their proposals for the various sections of kult-ur, Revista interdisciplinària sobre la cultura de la ciutat can read the guidelines, and procedure for submitting original manuscripts via the OJS platform (authors must first register).
