URBANITIES is an on-line, open-access peer-reviewed academic journal. It was founded in 2011 and is published twice a year (in May and in November). The journal’s scope is to provide a forum for debate on issues of scientific and public interest worldwide. It aims at providing the scientific community and the general public with up-to-date news on urban research and its relevance in understanding the social, cultural, political, economic and environmental changes of today’s world.

URBANITIES aims at publishing original articles on research at the forefront of the discipline, at exploring new trends and debates in Urban Anthropology that promote critical scholarship in international anthropology and at highlighting the contribution of urban research to the broader society. Articles published in the journal are ethnographically based and address theoretical, methodological or public issues concerning all aspects of urban research. URBANITIES is also committed to promoting comparative debate and research between socio-cultural anthropology and other cognate disciplines.

URBANITIES  welcomes contributions from new and established scholars, researchers and practitioners who can make a valuable contribution to the subject matter and to international urban ethnography.

Alongside scientific articles, URBANITIES publishes review articles, book reviews and news on research done and in-progress and on recently completed doctorates in urban anthropology. In order to stimulate debate, URBANITIES encourages publication of letters and comments. It also publishes brief announcements of forthcoming conferences and other relevant events, conference reports, University courses and jobs; announcements from Publishing Houses.
