This site is for public scholarly discussion of urban communities and culture, semiotics, and visual sociology.
Our photo archive contains collections from urban neighborhoods in many global cities. Check out the albums for Little Italies, Chinatowns, and neighborhoods in global cities by following the links in the right margin. We are adding new photographs regularly. If you have a collection of photos from a city not in the gallery and would like to contribute, please contact us.
We have a collection of learning modules available also. If you teach sociology, take a look to see what we offer. If you have additional materials you would like to share, please contact us.
We also maintain an archive of scholarly works on urban communities, urban semiotics, and visual sociology. In the right margin, you will also see links to some of our special exhibits.
