Call for contributions

The international journal of urban anthropology Lidé města / Urban People invites authors to submit their articles to be included in the journal’s annual English issue.

Deadline for article submissions: March 31, 2021 (authors are encouraged to send their contributions prior to this date, as this will help expedite the editorial process).

General contributions. Authors are encouraged to send in articles on any topic corresponding to the general goals of the Urban People journal (see below). In addition, the next issue of the journal will also include two specific rubrics:

  1. Entangled crises. We live in times of multiple, interrelated crises affecting people and societies on a global scale: from climate change and the covid-19 pandemic, to various national and international political crises; various forms of systemic violence (e.g., economic inequality, racism, sexism); media crises (e.g., fake news), new technology crises (e.g., digital surveillance), and various crises of academic institutions. We therefore encourage scholars to submit articles that scrutinize (urban) human life from the perspective of the predicaments of our times. Moreover, contributors should observe the entanglement of different crises, and attend to both the larger forces accountable for the crises, as well as to the everyday ethnographic realities of the people experiencing them.

  2. Ethnographies of cities and towns. We search for articles that study particular cities and towns from around the globe. This will be a regular rubric of the Urban People journal, which will aim to motivate research and to publish articles that focus on historical, economic, political, social, and/or cultural issues related to the ethnographic and interdisciplinary study of specific urban areas.
