Critical Planning Journal: Call for Images

 Critical Planning Journal

This is a call for images for the UCLA’s Urban Planning upcoming Critical Planning Journal publication with the theme Spaces of Struggle

Images should be high-resolution, JPG format, and should be accompanied by author information and a caption. The images will appear as full-page separators between the individual articles. Following is a description of the themes this journal covers:
Urban regions are catalysts of change. They foster pragmatic politics that enables more progressive governance. “Progress,” however, has to contend with histories and structures that grew from exclusionary logic, uneven development, and the systematic exploitation of labor. Progress does not happen on its own; it emerges from the continued efforts of activists, engaged citizens, intellectuals, and professionals that strive for a more just city. It requires developing common platforms to facilitate the conflicts that inevitably come with differences. Spaces of Struggle is about creating spaces that harness differences and transforms them into momentum for progressive change.
We believe radical planning plays a crucial role in creating spaces of struggle but equally solicit submissions from outside urban planning to open up pathways beyond exclusionary developments. CPJ is particularly interested in papers that address the following themes:
Historical systems and practices reproducing/spatializing inequality, injustice
Social movements, insurgency, collaboration/alliances across communities, activists, professionals and academics
Radical planning, community action research, policy, law, the state
Anarchist, socialist, feminist and queer planning
Sanctuary cities, commons, occupy, dissensus, democracy, agonistic pluralism
Environmental justice, political ecology, natures

Inquiries and submissions should be directed to
