Call for Papers “Marking 25 years of the Journal of Transport Geography – past/current/future developments”
RGS with IBG Annual International Conference, 28-31 August 2018, Cardiff, UK.
Session sponsored by Transport Geography Research Group.
Convened by Richard Knowles, Frank Witlox and Tim Schwanen
We are inviting abstract submissions from two TGRG sponsored sessions at the 2018 RGS/IBG Annual International Conference, titled “Marking 25 years of the Journal of Transport Geography – past/current/future developments”.
In 2018 the Journal of Transport Geography – the leading interdisciplinary journal focusing on the geographical dimensions of transport, travel and mobility – will celebrate its 25 years of existence. To commemorate this anniversary we invite leading transport geography scholars to put forward their prospective views on the field. This field is very broad in scope, ranging from conceptual innovations, theoretically-informed advances, to empirically-oriented contributions on the movement of people, goods and/or information by any mode and at every geographical scale. We welcome papers that reflect on the field. How has our discipline evolved? What can we learn from the past? What are the new research avenues?
All accepted session papers will be published (after peer-review) in a Special Issue of Journal of Transport Geography.
If you interested in presenting a paper in this session, please submit to the session convenors (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org) the following information by Friday 9 February 2018: Title, authors, affiliations and addresses, presenter and abstract (300 words).
