Environment and Planning D: Society and Space
Environ Plann Soc Space
Published/Hosted by Pion Ltd..
Environment and Planning D is an interdisciplinary journal that leads internationally in discussions of the relations between Society and Space. Space is broadly conceived: from landscapes of the body to global geographies; from cyberspace to old growth forests; as metaphorical and material; as theoretical construct and empirical fact. Interpretations move across theoretical spectrums, from psychoanalysis to political economy. The journal editors are equally committed to the nitty gritty of practical politics and the abstractions of social theory. We believe that this commitment is best achieved by keeping a balance between, and placing into creative tension, economic, political, and cultural analyses, as well as theoretical discussions and a range of empirical research. The journal is interdisciplinary; in recent years it has drawn papers from the disciplines of geography, cultural studies, anthropology, sociology, politics, international relations, english, architecture, planning, history, women's studies, art history, and philosophy. It is international in content, a feature that is actively pursued by an international Editorial Advisory Board. Debate is timely and lively. Recent issues include an exchange between David Harvey and Donna Haraway, as well as collections of essays focused around the themes of Animals and Geography, and Deleuze and Dwelling. A good number of papers published in the journal have had a lasting impact; two recent edited volumes of reprinted articles in Social Geography, and Philosophy and Geography are comprised of papers drawn primarily from Society and Space. Apart from papers and debate, there are editorials and commentaries, many of which are highly cited and a good number later reprinted elsewhere, as well as book reviews and extended review essays.
