Theory, Culture & Society E-Special Issue on John Urry

Urry-coverThe Theory, Culture & Society E-Special Issue on John Urry, edited and introduced by Mimi Sheller, is now available.

This e-special issue of Theory, Culture & Society presents key works published by the late British Sociologist John Urry (1946-2016) in the journals Theory, Culture & Society and Body & Society. It serves both to commemorate and to continue Urry’s profound contributions as a social theorist, as a network builder, and as a public intellectual who changed the face of British, and indeed global, social science. The selections range from 1982 to 2014, including articles and introductions to collections, both sole-authored and collaborative pieces. By gathering this portion of his work in one place we seek to make it easily accessible, as well as marking the signal importance of his impact on contemporary social theory.
