Exploring Nightlife: Space, Society and Governance

We are currently seeking contributions for an anthology on nightlife and the nighttime economy. The editors are seeking contributions from new and established scholars working on the night-time economy, specifically in relation to the themes of regeneration, tourism, governance and gentrification. While the editors approach this field from a sociological perspective, contributions from across the social sciences, in particular geography, anthropology, planning, cultural studies and tourism, are strongly encouraged.

Possible topics might include, but are not limited to:
– The night-time economy and socio-spatial urban segregation
– The gentrification of nightlife
– Studentification of the urban night
– Nightlife, branding and tourism (including in coastal resorts)
– Marginal/Peripheral nightscapes
– Regulation of spaces and districts
– Regulation of consumption and licensing
– Nightlife Programs (local administration, etc.)

Deadline for abstract submission: 24.03.2016 (300-500 words)
