Call for Papers: New ‘GeoHumanities’ Journal
While the discipline of geography has traditionally embraced and contributed to the humanities, there has been a remarkable resurgence in the past decade of intellectual interplay between geography and the humanities in both academic and public circles. Many humanities scholars and well-known writers and artists are increasingly incorporating geographic concepts, technologies, and methods into their work, while geographers have recently gained new insights by borrowing from developments across a great range of humanities disciplines. Metaphors and core geographic concepts such as place, space, landscape, scale, and mapping now permeate literature, philosophy, the arts, and other humanities, and the broader imaginative reinterpretation of these concepts has in turn led to a renaissance of creativity in geography. The interactions between Geography and the Humanities are growing rapidly.
GeoHumanities is a new journal being launched by the Association of American Geographers and will be published by Taylor and Francis. Its editors are Tim Cresswell (Northeastern University, Boston) and Deborah Dixon (University of Glasgow). GeoHumanities 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.
