cultural geographies


eISSN: 14770881 | ISSN: 14744740 | Current volume: 31 | Current issue: 2 Frequency: Quarterly

cultural geographies is an international journal of peer-reviewed scholarly research on and theoretical interventions into the cultural dimensions of environment, landscape, space, and place. We encourage papers that engage the cultural politics of geographical issues. cultural geographies is particularly committed to the development of methodologically rigorous interpretive approaches that explore how meaning, materiality and/or practice are implicated in the (re)production, maintenance and transformation of cultural worlds as they are materially constituted, represented, imagined, and lived. We do not restrict our remit to any particular methodological or theoretical orientation, but publish both empirically grounded, and theoretically speculative pieces designed to further understanding and debate. We welcome contributions from scholars and practitioners across the arts, humanities, and social and environmental sciences.

The journal’s Cultural Geographies in Practice section offers an editor-reviewed space for critical reflection on creative expression in the discipline of geography, on artistic, civic, and policy practices that inform and/or relate to geographic concerns, and for reflections on and with practitioners in or outside cultural geography. It acknowledges, presents, and discusses the intellectual and practical engagements with the journal’s interests beyond a narrowly conceived academy. We particularly encourage submissions from practitioners beyond the academy, and from collaborations between academics and other individuals and groups.

cultural geographies remains committed to an extensive Book Review section where we publish both review essays and reviews in brief.

A successful paper in cultural geographies will typically:

Advance a new approach to an issue or debate in cultural geography or the humanities and social sciences more broadly.

Significantly further an existing approach to an issue or debate in cultural geography or the humanities and social sciences more broadly.

Detail a truly exemplary empirical case that does not significantly forward new theoretical approaches, but makes clear how existing approaches work.

When authors make clear their contributions in these areas, their papers are much more likely to succeed.

In general, we avoid:

Strictly empirical case studies, or case studies that represent applications of existing approaches without forwarding those approaches.

Interdisciplinary papers that do not engage with cultural geography.
