Special issue on Performative maps publish

 
Things mapped and planned as part of municipal planning have a tendency to become “real”, but also other mapping exercises have proven themselves to be performatory in the sense that, “once mapped – it will be”. Hence, the scope of this volume is to address the performative role of maps and mapping at various scales and across different mapping traditions.

Call for contributions to a special issue on performative maps

 

Certainly, things mapped and planned as part of municipal planning have a tendency to become “real”, but also other mapping exercises have proven themselves to be performatory in the sense that, “once mapped – it will be”. Hence, the scope of this volume is to address the performative role of maps and mapping at various scales and across different mapping traditions.

A consolidated editorial board

 

Since 2002, Geoforum Perspektiv has throughout the years contributed to fostering research within the field of geographical (spatial) information and to disseminating this knowledge to Danish authorities, private businesses, as well as Danish research institutes. Due to new demands from The Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science, the journal has formalized the review process (and implemented a double-blind review supported by Open Journal System (OJS)), as well as consolidated the editorial board.
