Call For Papers


The Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts at Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok and Osaka City University, Japan invite contributions of papers for the Journal of Urban Culture Research

Worthy contributions in the general arena of urban culture are welcome from researchers and practitioners at all stages in their careers at anytime and do not need to related to a specific call for papers. No fees ever are charged. See our Submission Guidelines page for instructions.

Once a year we list a dual call for papers for the annual Urban Research Plaza’s forum on urban culture held in Bangkok, Thailand in March. Below is an example of the March 2020 call.

Theme:  Saving Our Urban Habitat – Creating a Sustainable Future

OUR FORUM aims to fulfill Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) while promoting and achieving responsible social and personal lifestyles. The journal aims to encourage researchers, artists, and those involved in urban planning to seek cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural practices aimed at fostering the sustainable development of vibrant, livable cities and the promotion of cultural continuity. Articles spanning the wide and diverse field of urban culture and the arts as a tool to promote community and individual well-being, health, and diversity are welcome. The below list is offered as evocative guidelines rather than implying requirements. Click to download the pdf of the below call. Note: This is a dual call for papers in conjunction with the 18th annual Urban Research Forum. See Forum for details.
