Extended Deadline - Geopolitical Mapping: Redux

EXTENDED DEADLINE - we're extending the call for yet more submissions!

Final CFP: Journal of Maps Special Issue

Geopolitical Mapping: Redux

Colleagues - thank you to those who have already submitted great proposals -
this is final call for papers for a special issue of Journal of Maps centred
on examining relations between geopolitics and mapping.

We invite contributions to a special issue of the Journal of Maps focused upon
a critical and creative re-thinking of cartography's relation to geopolitics.
Whilst broadening the ambit of 'what counts' as mapping, and likewise of 'what
counts' as geopolitics, the special issue seeks contributions that generate
cartographic interventions, and that do so across a range of disciplines and
non-academic fields, not least in cultural geography, Science and Technology
Studies STS, spatial modelling, international relations, art, and philosophy.

Please find more details here:

Submission details are copied below.

If you'd like to discuss further, please drop me a line.

All best,

All papers are expected to consist of a map or series of maps (loosely and
broadly defined to include various forms of spatial representation)
accompanied by a brief explanatory text. Papers should be bespoke, and the
mapping of good quality. All papers in this special issue will be peer
reviewed. To submit a paper, authors should do the following:

1. Email a short draft (500-word limit) to the editors outlining the key
themes and scope of the paper, where possible including example mapping, by
Friday 22nd March 2019.

Abstract selection will be by the special issue editorial team. You will
receive a notification by Friday 29th March 2019.

1. Submit a completed paper (4000-word limit) by Sunday 8th September
2. The special issue will be published in 2020.

The special issue editorial team are happy to discuss ideas for papers and
their suitability with potential contributors prior to the short draft
submission stage. Please email Joe Gerlach
( or Mike Smith
( in the first instance.

All submissions should be made via the Journal of Maps website
( where further guidance on all
aspects of submission can be found.

Please note the journal is open access, with an article processing charge of
