Cultures of the Suburbs International Research Network (IRN)

A collaboration between the Universities of Exeter and Kingston (U.K.), Witwatersrand (South Africa), Hofstra (U.S.A.), Griffith (Australia) and the National University of Ireland, Maynooth, the Cultures of the Suburbs IRN aims to further the scholarly, professional and public understanding of the cultures of the modern (post-1900) suburbs through international and interdisciplinary research. Launched in 2011, the project’s interests are transhistorical, international and cross-disciplinary. The Network facilitates research, organises events and conferences and fosters collaboration between scholars, community groups, professionals and other interested parties.
