CFP: “Beyond the City: New Urban Definitions” (Kult-ur Journal, Spain)

Dear colleagues,
It is a pleasure to invite contributions on the theme "Beyond the City: New Urban Definitions", for a special edition of the journal KULT-UR, an open access journal indexed in several international databases. We welcome unpublished papers that defy established definitions of "city" (and the possibility to uncover new dimensions of its antithesis, the "non-city"). Empirical and theoretical analyses that include case studies from across the world, with a special mention to Japan, are welcome.
