CFP: Cartography and Narrative Special Issues

When: June 28, 2013


NANO – New American Notes Online and The Cartographic Journal seek academic and artistic contributions for two special issues of these two academic journals.

The first special issue will be published in NANO (issue 6) and co-edited by Laurene Vaughan and Matthew Bissen. NANO is a peer-reviewed online journal capable of publishing a full range of media and designed to encourage new interpretations and new possibilities. They are particularly interested in submissions that explore and articulate representations of place via narrative structures, especially the different ways such places and structures are recorded, communicated, and critiqued. They invite submissions that address forms of these two broad questions:  how do narratives traverse through a “somewhere”? And, equally important, how are real and imagined places narrated?

The second special issue will be published in The Cartographic Journal and co-edited by Sébastien Caquard and William Cartwright. It will compile a range of academic papers providing more of a cartographic perspective on the relationships between maps and narratives.  Both of these issues will be cross-referenced to give more visibility to the publications as well as to support the interdisciplinary dimension of this project.
