The International Association for the Study of the Culture of Cities is an international and interdisciplinary forum for colleagues who share intellectual interests in developing innovative approaches to interpretive arts, methods, strategies and programs of inquiry for representing qualitative vectors of urban life. The Association organizes a structure of collegial encounters through an annual conference, workshops and special events,  exhibitions, film series, and on-line presentations. As part of its commitment to fostering and developing new research, The Association sponsors two book series devoted to publishing experimental and innovative  research in  qualitative studies of everyday life and is committed to encouraging publishing opportunities for scholars, artists, and practitioners of the city.
