Understanding the Urban Sociology Landscape 

Ever wonder if the scope of your paper is a good fit for an urban sociology journal? Ever consider who might be reviewing your paper? Have you thought about current gaps in the urban sociology literature you could be filling? A better understanding of “what is urban sociology?” and the urban sociology landscape may help scholars appropriately place their manuscripts and craft their engagement with other scholars in this space. From discussing the difference between urban sociology and other disciplines (urban studies, non-urban sociology, etc.) to the current trends in the literature, we invite you to join Richard Ocejo, editor of City & Community, for a virtual information session on the urban sociology landscape. All scholars (especially students!) are welcome to join. 

Note: Registration is required and this event will not be recorded.

When: Thursday, Dec 8, 2022 06:30-8:00 PM ET

Albert Fu: Sofya and Ervin, first of all, congratulations on your new role as book review editors for City & Community. Can you tell us a little bit more about the new initiative on non-English book reviews?

Sofya Aptekar: Thank you, Albert. We’re pretty excited to be part of the effort of running this journal. The idea of adding reviews of books published in languages other than English was broached to us by the new editor-in-chief Richard E. Ocejo. Both Ervin and I thought it would be great for C&C readership, and have begun the exciting work of tracking down books published across the world.
