The Culture of Cities Centre, is located in downtown Toronto at The Centre for Social Innovation (CSI Annex) and in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Waterloo  The Centre’s primary function is to engage an international public through book series, journals, research projects and conferences. Our publications, workshops and special events are devoted to new ways of representing, shaping and defining urban culture.  The Centre’s character is at once public and private, reflective and engaged, but always oriented to the very social order that it seeks to elucidate. Now in its thirteenth year of operation, this website was launched to showcase the collective’s work, starting from the inception of the SSHRC-fundedCulture of CitiesProject in 1999, to the founding of the Culture of Cities Centre in 2000, to the collective’s branching out in 2005 to study discourses of health in the Grey Zone of Health and Illness project, to work on the city that continues continues to this day. The Culture of Cities Centre is a member of the Consortium of Humanities Centres and Institutes, a network of humanities-based centres and institutes that fosters crossdisciplinary dialogue among faculty and researchers the world over.
