Night Studies is a transdisciplinary field with works from different social and human sciences. Research covers a wide range of topics related to the so-called ‘Nocturnal World(s)’, including a good number of geographical, cultural, and social contexts; formal and informal practices; and normative and non-normative behaviours. In recent years the study of the night, either as object of study or as context, has grown exponentially. It would not be risky to affirm that, we are witnessing the emergence of a ‘Golden Age’ for Night Studies.

ICNS.LX3 invites all researchers to submit genuine and unpublished works that take the nocturnal city as object or as study context. On the other hand, papers that reflect on night studies, their possible future research agenda, new methodologies and methods, and reflections on ethical issues related to fieldwork in challenging times are more than welcome.
