Dear all

I hope you will find the following of interest!


GeoHumanities - Call for Submissions

GeoHumanities is a new journal being launched by the Association of American Geographers and published by Taylor and Francis. Its editors are Tim Cresswell (Northeastern University, Boston) and Deborah Dixon (University of Glasgow). It publishes original peer-reviewed articles that span conceptual and methodological debates in geography and the humanities; critical reflections on analog and digital artistic productions; and new scholarly interactions occurring at the intersections of geography and multiple humanities disciplines.

GeoHumanities includes full length scholarly articles in the GeoHumanities Articles section and shorter creative pieces that cross over between the academy and creative practice in the Practices and Curations section.

We are now looking for submissions in both of these sections for the first two issues of the journal. Submissions will be managed through Manuscript Central and the reference formatting, style guidelines etc.  will be the same as other AAG journals. (see http://www.aag.org/libraries/cm_journals/ANNALS_STYLE_SHEET_61912.pdf)

Note - GeoHumanities Articles will have a maximum length of 8000 words (including references), Practices and Curations will have a maximum length of 4000 words (including references). GeoHumanities will include full color images.

GeoHumanities welcomes contributions that engage and renew traditional geographical themes including place, space, landscape and cartography. We are interested in contributions from scholars across the humanities and arts including, for instance: history, philosophy, religious studies, literary studies, performance studies, film and media studies, cultural studies, gender studies, creative writing, art, music and theater as well as geography.

More specifically, topic and subject areas may include (but are not limited to):

GIS in the humanities
environmental humanities
medical humanities
spatial history
corporeality and affect
cyber-space, film studies, media, and visual/material culture
critical and creative cartographies
geographies of art
approaches to landscape,
performance and performativity
place writing and literary geographies
museums, curation and memory

GeoHumanities  is committed to expanding the scope of what is normally expected of a scholarly journal and is especially keen to publish work from creative artists and/or creative work by scholars. To this end we encourage diverse and experimental modes of writing and visualization including creative essays, poetry, stand-alone images, photo-essays, images integrated with text, interviews with artists and other interdisciplinary engagements with the geographical imagination. While these would usually be in the Practice and Curations section they might also be full-length articles.

If you have a paper, intervention, creative work, or an idea for any of these, then please be in touch with any of the editorial team (see below).
