Volume Seven: Urban Redevelopment.
Volume Seven of Research in Urban Sociology invites submissions on various dimensions of urban redevelopment in the United States and around the world. Kevin Gotham at Tulane University will be the guest editor of Volume Seven. Volume Six (Race and Ethnicity in Urban Areas; Edited by Ray Hutchison at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay)is currently at press with a publication date of Fall 2000. The primary objective of Volume Seven is to publish high quality papers that increase our knowledge and understanding of the causes and consequences of urban redevelopment: historical case studies, comparative analyses, policy and planning, growth issues, culture and consumption, and related substantive issues and theoretical concerns.
In the last few decades, urban areas in the United States and in other nations have been subjected to a series of unprecedented changes including federal retrenchment, immigration and demographic shifts in population, economic restructuring, and the rise of new modes of consumption and identity in the city. Currently, cities are experimenting with new forms of urban redevelopment to attract new investment, rebuild their cores, and create new spaces of consumption and leisure. Volume Seven seeks papers that reflect not only established, but also emerging themes and trends in the history and study of urban redevelopment, and will consider longer papers generally ranging from 35 to 50 pages.
We expect publication of Volume Seven in the fall of 2001, which will require submission of the completed manuscript in late May of 2000 (this time-frame is flexible). If you are interested in contributing to the volume, please contact me e-mail, with an abstract of the manuscript or a description of your work. We will work with you in the revision / editing of the original manuscript. We are committed to publishing the very best papers available regardless of substantive area, theoretical perspective, or methodological approach.
