Mapping Meaning, the Journal
In a deeply fragmented and disciplined-based world, Mapping Meaning creates a space to encounter divergent approaches toward “surveying” landscapes in the face of radical global change and ecological and social crises. Inspired by a photograph from 1918 depicting an all-female survey crew, Mapping Meaning supports the creative work and scholarship of all those working at the margins and ecotones. In its inaugural issue, Mapping Meaning, the Journal, seeks submissions that cross and/or challenge traditional boundaries between social, psychological and environmental ecologies with the greatest potential to revitalize dialogue and foster alternative narratives. We solicit work from scientists, humanists, and artists from within or outside the academy and are especially interested in field-based research and learning. Work will be reviewed by issue editors and the editorial board (please see website for details).
AREAS OF PARTICULAR INTEREST: Experimental Knowledge Practices that utilize divergent approaches to address issues of ecological complexity in our physical, social, and spiritual worlds. Collaborative Methodologies showing examples across discipline, distance, and generation. (Re)Surveying Scholarship and Creative Work that uncovers unrecognized histories.
