Our new publisher, SAGE, has put up a number of papers in the early online section of the new Environment and Planning D: Society and Space site. Among these are several papers set to appear in the next issue of the journal, which will be published by the end of August. These include papers that will be part of a special issue on the theme ‘War, law and space’ (guest edited by Craig A. Jones and Michael Smith) by Craig A. Jones, Katia Snukal and Emily Gilbert, S.M. Reid-Henry, Mark Boyle and Audrey Kobayashi, and Rachel Hughes [additional pieces for that special issue by Zoltán Glück and John Morrissey are also available on the journal’s old site], as well as a stand-alone piece by Julian C.T. Barker on nightscapes and travel in 19th century India.
Also online early are papers by Kate Bedford and Fleur Johns, both of which will appear in a special issue on ‘The Politics of the List’ (guest edited by Marieke de Goede, Anna Leander and Gavin Sullivan) to be published in early 2016.
The remaining eight papers cover the politics of prison transfers within the British Penal Estate (by Luca Follis), the logics of visualization in immigrant integration in the Netherlands and Germany (by Sanne Boersma and Willem Schinkel), the politics of complexity and resistance in anti-genetically modified organism activism (by Leonie Ansems de Vries and Doerthe Rosenow), India’s mobile phone ecology as affective, human-technical assemblages (by Amit S. Rai), transformations to identity and social relations arising from the reinvention of airport infrastructures and facilities (by Anthony Elliott and David Radford), the exclusions and silences perpetuated by Vancouver’s recent Missing Women Commission of Inquiry (by Juliane Collard), human rights, sovereignty and postcoloniality in Pakistan’s tribal belt (by Muhammad Ali Nasir), and the ‘anxieties of control’ of our big data present (by Agnieszka Leszczynski).
All of these papers are currently available open access, as part of a free trial period with SAGE. Also available open access for a limited time are all of the Environment and Planning D: Society and Space archives from the first issue in 1983 to the most recent 2015 issue.
