Submissions for the Bicicultures Book
Recognizing the bicycle's ability to cut across built, natural, and cultural landscapes, we want to demonstrate the value of qualitative scholarly work on bicycling to advocacy, policy, and activism. Essays in this collection will apply a cultural or critical theory to a real-world problem in order to show what these frameworks and approaches can teach us about everyday bicycling.
The style and language of submissions should appeal to an everyday reader and be around 1000-2000 words in length. We're looking for straightforward stories about why you study the particular cycling cultural phenomena you do, what concept best helps you understand these realms, and what your intellectual labor contributes to the topic you study.

The questions below are to give us a sense of what your final submission will address, but is not the final submission. We will begin reviewing applications after July 4th. Those chosen to submit full essays will be notified via email.
