A New Issue of 'Urban Studies and Practices' is out

Vol. 2 · #1 · 2017


As a special issue devoted to migrants and the city, it aims to present international scholarship on the intersection of urban and migration studies which today face methodological as well as conceptual challenges.

The issue brings together prominent international scholars who discuss state-of-the-art migration studies and reflect on the future trends. Thought-provoking narratives were generously provided by eight scholars: Rainer Baubock, Caroline Brettell, Maurice Crul, Marco Martiniello, Vladimir Mukomel, Madeleine Reeves, Olga Tkach and Frank Van Tubergen. The more conventional format of articles is presented by the six excellent pieces from all over the world. The texts deal with migrant integration on the basis of  intercultural events (Evgeni Varshaver, Anna Rocheva, Nataliya Ivanova) as well as prejudice reduction and spirituality (Pavel Zubkov), break conventional pictures of the migrant communities in London (Liliia Zemnukhova), provide in-detail description of the settlement patterns of migrants in Bilbao (Iraide Fernández Aragón, Farid Khogyani Bassina, and Julia Shershneva), delve into child-rearing practices of migrants in Madrid (Raisa Akifyeva) and address the entwinement of migrants’ presence and linguistic landscapes (Vlada Baranova, Kapitolina Fedorova).

The issue is completed with the first Russian translation of a highly cited article by Alejandro Portes and Min Zhou introducing theory of segmented assimilation.

Vol. 2 · #1 · 2017 can be purchased in the bookshop of Higher School of Economics (БукВышка).

It is also available for download from our website free of charge.


Enjoy!
