Call for submissions – The Urban Transcripts Journal

Calling for submissions of work that explore the multiple facets of our urban world. A range of media is sought:

Deadline for submissions to our forthcoming issue: 8 May 2017

 
Launched in March of 2017, The Urban Transcripts Journal is an online quarterly publication that aims to unravel the complexity of the City through a synergy of verbal and visual content. Our core mission is to advance a multitude of knowledges of the City, formulated through creative media, research inquiry, urban design and planning practice.
 
We are particularly committed to promoting original work by young researchers, professionals, and creatives, including postgraduate and PhD students.
 
Beyond the traditional article format, the journal publishes work in a variety of formats and brings theory and practice together for a creative, analytical, and critical discourse on the city; an urban transcript where the arts and the sciences of the City complement and confront one another.
