Journal of Urban Culture Research (JUCR) is an international, online, double-blind, peer-reviewed journal published by the Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts of Thailand’s Chulalongkorn University in conjunction with the Urban Research Plaza of Osaka City University, Japan. JUCR offers its readers two categories of content. One is a window into the latest international conferences and reviews of related sources – books, etc. along with guest articles, special features, and case studies. Secondly, its main core is a range of peer-reviewed articles from researchers in the international community.
Aims and Scope
JUCR aims at establishing a broad interdisciplinary platform for studies of cultural creativity and the arts that brings together researchers and cultural practitioners to identify and share innovative and creative experiences in establishing sustainable and vibrant, livable communities while fostering cultural continuity. The journal embraces broad cultural discussions regarding communities of any size as it recognizes the urban community’s rural roots.
JUCR encourages researchers and the full range of artists in the topics including:
• Visual art and Design
• Music, Ethnomusicology
• Creative arts
• Performance studies, Dance
• Cultural studies
• Related disciplines (Creative arts therapies, Urban Planning, etc.)
Articles related to either the academic or wide vernacular interpretation of urban culture and the arts as a tool promoting community and individual well-being, health, and diversity are welcome.
JUCR has the objective of stimulating research on both the theory and practice of fine and applied arts in response to social challenges and environmental issues as well as calling for solutions across the creative realms. Moreover, JUCR supports advocacy processes, improvements in practices, and encourages supportive public policy-making related to cultural resources. JUCR intends to offer readers relevant theoretical discussions and act as a catalyst for expanding the knowledge-base of creative expression related to urban culture.
