We are pleased to announce the first Call for Paper for the first issue of Urbain trop Urbain magazine: a “No City Guide for Shanghai”.
The main idea is to develop a digital “no city guide” for the pleasure of the “flâneur urbain”. The review is edited in French language, but English and Spanish Papers are allowed, so most authors will be able to write in their mother tongue. You can find more details (in French) on our web page
Architects, planners, photographers, artists, etc. who visited Shanghai or worked in this town can easily contribute. For the 10th of May we are only expecting an email with an idea, a thematic purpose and the technical mode of expression (just text, or picture, video, sound, etc.). The further definitive contribution is expected in July. All details in our call for contribution below (in French).
Urbain trop Urbain is one of the most influent web-magazine in France in the field of urban culture, with a very interdisciplinary approach to the subject of contemporary citites, mixing urbanism with literature, sociology and philosophy.
The name “Urbain trop Urbain” refers to Human, All Too Human, the book by the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche.
