The Journal of Urban Affairs at 40: Transitions, Transformations, and Milestones


The session will focus on the last 40 years of the Journal of Urban Affairs (JUA), with four editors discussing the JUA’s historical development, transitions, transformations, and milestones. The speakers will discuss the challenges during their term as the JUA’s editor, as well as the rewards in helping shape the field of urban studies. The evolution of topics and debates over the last four decades, the changes in methods and applications of knowledge, and the JUA’s growing interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary profile will all be explored. The transition in publishers and the move from publishing five to eight issues per year will also be discussed during this session.
