Urban Social Capital--call for contributions to edited volume
While the contemporary literature devoted to social capital is extensive, cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary analyses of the distinct character of urban social capital have yet to be published in a single edited volume. To that end the co-editors of "Urban Social Capital: Civil Society and City Life" call for papers that clarify, define and explain various facets of social capital formation in the urban milieu. Drawing together contemporary theory and empirical research in social capital, political economy, urban planning, citizenship and democracy, "Urban Social Capital" aims to examine the composition and functions of social capital—and civil society more generally—in diverse metropolitan settings. We seek contributions from a range of disciplines in the social sciences and humanities that explore how generalized trust, social norms, networks, connections and ties are created and deployed under conditions of social complexity, cultural pluralism, administrative bureaucratization, globalization, economic inequality, and ethnoracial diversity and division.
Submissions (complete papers only) should be 25-50 pages in length. Authors should also include a short bio with their submission.
