Víctor Muñoz Sanz and Nikos Katsikis are editing Footprint 33, dedicated to ‘Situating More-Than-Human Ecologies of Extended Urbanisation’.
This issue of Footprint aims to explore the spatial implications of technological transformations found across those operational landscapes of primary production (agriculture, resource extraction) that constitute the metabolic basis of urbanisation. We welcome contributions around three sub-themes focusing on: (1) multiscalar processes of operationalisation, producing landscapes of extended urbanisation, with a focus on primary production and circulation; (2) situated entanglements of technology, questioning assemblages of human and more-than-human work with particular landscapes and architectures; (3) design investigations of automated landscapes of extended urbanisation, deciphering their physical and material configurations.
Proposals for full, peer-reviewed articles (6000–8000 words) and review articles and visual essays (2000–4000 words) will be evaluated by the editors in the form of abstracts (max. 1000 words for full articles, max. 500 words for review articles and visual essays) submitted by 22 April 2022. Authors of selected abstracts will be invited to develop their contributions by 2 September 2022.
Full articles go through a double-blind peer review process, while review articles are evaluated by the editors. Footprint 33 will be published in the autumn of 2023.Read more about Footprint 33: Situating More-Than-Human Ecologies of Extended Urbanisation
