The following is a collection of research on our topic, published by action members before Writing Urban Places. Work published during the action is included in the output section of this library. With this collection we intend to provide an overview of the different investigations on literature and the city carried out by action members, in the hope they will be useful to others and even lead to new collaborations.

Action members interested in adding their work to this bibliography can send their entries (please follow Chicago rules of style strictly) to
