Welcome to the New Urban Sociology Research Cluster!

Welcome to the new urban sociology research cluster of the Canadian Sociology Association. This cluster provides a platform for Canadian researchers working in the domain of urban sociology. We welcome sociologists whose work seeks to understand human interactions and institutions in urban areas both in Canada and globally. This includes research on topics that explore the various and interrelated dimensions of cultural, economic and social life in cities such as housing inequality, gentrification, race, gender and sexuality in the city, the changing nature of work in the sharing economy, and relationship between urban design and sociability. Embracing a variety of empirical, theoretical and methodological perspectives this new cluster will provide a space for both long-standing and emerging debates on the role of cities and urbanization in Canadian society.
