Theme and Events Planned Around the Launch of AAG’s New ‘GeoHumanities’ Journal

GeoHumanities, the AAG’s new interdisciplinary scholarly journal, co-edited by Tim Cresswell (History and International Affairs, Northeastern University) and Deborah Dixon (Geography, University of Glasgow) will begin publication in fall 2015. GeoHumanitites seeks to publish peer-reviewed articles that span conceptual and methodological debates in geography and the humanities; critical reflections on analog and digital artistic productions; and new scholarly interactions occurring at the intersections of geography and multiple humanities disciplines.

GeoHumanities will include full length scholarly articles of around 8,000 words in the GeoHumanities Articles section and shorter creative pieces of around 2,000-40,000 words that cross over between the academy and creative practice in the Practices and Curations section.

Submissions to GeoHumanities will undergo the same double-blind peer review process as other AAG journals on a dedicated ScholarOne Manuscript Central site. The AAG will begin accepting papers for review in the coming weeks. The call for papers will be announced online at

Several sessions have been organized around the theme of “GeoHumanities” and the launch of the new AAG journal.
