Academic journals: Environment and Planning D: Society and Space

Journal summary: Environment and Planning D: Society and Space is a peer reviewed journal publishing theoretically innovative scholarship that examines the contingent and possible relations between the social and the spatial. Papers may push the boundaries of theoretical debate while remaining contextually driven, attentive to questions of power, and inspired through empirical research.
The journal is committed to interdisciplinary approaches to social, economic, political, and cultural analyses across a range of research sites and topics. It holds equally firm commitments to considering the political and social justice imperatives of research and theory. Thus, theorizing the spatial contours of political violence and possibility are as vital to the journal’s mission as are conceptual debates that drive more abstract, although integral, understandings of space and society.

Academic journals: Environment and Planning C: Politics and Space

Journal summary: Environment and Planning C: Politics and Space is an international journal of critical, heterodox, and interdisciplinary research into the relations between the political and the spatial. It advances debates on the spatialization of politics and the politicization of spatial relations. The journal includes original contributions that integrate empirical and theoretical analyses to engage, advance, challenge, and reframe debates about the political.
Politics and Space values a wide range of critical and radical perspectives and encourages new theorizations, novel methodologies, and decentring ontologies. It encourages research that engages marginalized and oppressed standpoints and critically engages hegemonic forms of power. The journal aims to push the boundaries and potential of research on the political and the spatial by exploring questions including: What is the status of the political in such research? How does thinking politics spatially help us understand pressing contemporary concerns in the world? And how can or should researchers act politically through their scholarship? The substantive scope of Politics and Space extends from urban politics to the politics of international institutions; from political economies of development and empire to political geographies of mobilities and identities; from geopolitics to the governance of environmental crises; and from the spatialities of states and sovereign power to the geographies of social justice.
