The University of Edinburgh publishes a new academic webmagazine on cities. It's called The New Metropolitan and focuses on cultures of urban citizenship. So it's about, as the magazine says:
The New Metropolitan: a new webmagazine that focuses on urban culture.
"the social conventions and obligations that – when they work – make us feel part of a city. It’s about urban citizenship in new forms, and it’s about the urban citizenship when old forms beak down. And most of all, it’s about the way the physical form of cities – their buildings, streets and squares – condition the way we behave with one another. We can never prove that x form produces y behaviour. But we’ve yet to meet anyone who did not, somehow, believe it to be the case."
Currently The New Metropolitan's main page contains stories about divided cities as Skopje, Belfast, and Mitrovica, some book reviews and interviews. I've contributed a short piece about the Brussels-based European Constitution in Verse. More will follow soon. If you like what you read, and would like to contribute, then you should contact the editors through the site.
