Critical Urban Anthropology Association
CUAA particularly focuses on the interrelationships of urban, national, and transnational
processes as they affect and are affected by the everyday social and cultural lives of people living, acting,
and struggling in particular places, anthropology’s traditional area of concern.
CUAA’s members, a number of whom reside outside the U.S.A., include academic, practitioner/applied, and student anthropologists. Members’ expertise covers most nations (including the U.S.A.) of the world and their cities. In addition to conducting original research many CUAA members consult and work in or with private and public agencies dealing with social problems, development, and policy formation.
CUAA also publishes a journal, City & Society, which attempts to foster debate and conceptual development in urban, national, and transnational anthropology, particularly in their interrelationships. IT seek to promote communication related disciplines of interest to members of CUAA and to develop theory from a comparative perspective. If you are interested in learning more or submitting a manuscript, please visit their website.

City & Society
City & Society welcomes manuscripts concerned with city life, urban scapes, and translocal processes. Interdisciplinarity is encouraged with anthropology and cultural studies as epistemological and methodological guides. City & Society is also open to ethnographically based pieces of humanistic, historical, dialogical, narrative, poetic and visual orientation.
