Theme: Regions Beyond Their Spatiality
Subtitle: Political, Social and Urban Approaches to a Post-National Scenarios
Publication: Territories: A Trans-Cultural Journal of Regional Studies
Date: Issue Number 1 (July 2018)
Territories is a new digital, peer-reviewed, open-access journal,
published by the University of California through its repository
e-Scholarship. As a new journal in an emerging field, we seek to
approach the concept of region from a post-national, trans-national
perspective and contribute to the field as a forum for rigorous,
innovative academic debate about the current social, political, and
increasingly urban conditions concerning regions and regionality.
We invite contributions for our first number that are related (but
not limited) to the area of urban studies, smart cities,
architecture, new regionalism, social equality, cultural studies and
geography. In this first number, we want to interpolate the very
concept of region, disclosing any possible angle that can contribute
to explain the geo-political situation of the Western world, the
future of the macro and micro nations all over the world, and the
potential risks and opportunities for different cultures (and
cultural disciplines) to relocate and reinvent themselves in the
midst of the 21st century.
A word counter is desirable in the manuscript.
A typical paper for the journal should be in the range between
6,000-8,000 words, including endnotes and bibliography. This should
not include appendices, which will be published as supplemental data.
Authors should follow the Chicago Manual of Style 16th edition.
Abstracts should be submitted in English and they should be of no
more than 250 words. Each manuscript should have title and 5
keywords. Submissions must be prepared for double blind review. The
author’s name, the institutional affiliation and the title’s paper
must be placed in a separate file. Manuscripts must be sent as
