EUROPEAN JOURNAL OF CREATIVE PRACTICES IN CITIES AND LANDSCAPES
The European Journal of Creative Practices in Cities and Landscapes (CPCL) is a biannual open-access peer-reviewed journal that aims to publish innovative and original papers on cultural heritage in the built environment as a set of creative practices.
The focus will be the European city, with a particular attention to its transformations within the global metropolis and its flows of people, capitals, goods and ideas.
Cultural heritage is considered as a set of practices able to produce economic and social changes within cities rather than a static repository of listed objects to be preserved. Through a series of call for papers and thematic sections, the journal provides a space of reflection on the ideas, the technologies, the actors and the practices that continuously produce and re-negotiate cultural heritage as a common good – a space for democracy, participation and citizenship. The journal’s ambition is to constitute a practice-oriented platform for knowledge exchange bringing together academics from various disciplinary backgrounds, policy makers and NGOs.
Topics will include, but will not be limited to:
- Politics of cultural heritage
- Historic cities and global culture: citizenship, migrations and the postcolonial city
- Urban History as politics/urban history for policies
- Economies and management of collective values
- Culture and cities in the Anthropocene
- Aesthetics and philosophy of the city
- Technologies for cultural heritage and digital humanities
- Heritage and digital democracy
- Cultural heritage as urban commons
- Culture, cities and social innovation
