About



STREET SIGNS is the official publishing platform of the Centre for Urban and Community Research (CUCR) at Goldsmiths, University of London.

CUCR is a well established interdisciplinary research centre within Goldsmiths’ Department of Sociology with a distinguished history of collaboration with local communities and activists. It combines theoretical investigation with critical ‘local’ project implementation from Deptford to Jakarta.

Beyond current projects, this website contains some older words and images produced by CUCR members, giving insights into their research. A complete archive of our members’ previous work (up to 2021) can be found in our Old Blog.

If you have any comments, suggestions and/or ideas for new content, please, feel free to get in touch: ︎

And remember to check back for regular updates!
