Space and Culture: International Journal of Social Spaces

Space and Culture brings together dynamic, critical interdisciplinary theory and research on social spaces and spatializations, eveyday rhythms and cultural topologies at the interface of urban geography, sociology, cultural studies, studies of time-space, architectural theory, ethnography, media and urban studies, environmental studies. Space and Culture's unique focus is on social spaces, such as retail, laboratory, leisure spaces, suburbia, virtual spaces, diasporic spaces or migrancy, or the home and everyday life.

In every issue, Space and Culture explores and critiques everyday life in contemporary cities, environment, and new media. The Tables of Contents of recent issues illustrate some of our changing discussions.

Space and Culture features peer-reviewed articles on novel topics that are not written about anywhere else, review articles on important topics. Reviews, debates about articles, emerging areas, and the daily life of the journal are blogged at
