cultural geographies celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2018 and has created a free to access special collection of articles from its backlist to mark this occasion.
There has been a long overdue revival of interest recently amongst economic and development geographers in questions of geographical uneven development. The 13 articles in this virtual issue are key contributions to this debate.
These popular and significant articles help to advance the field of urban knowledge. The featured articles will be updated every quarter.
In previous years Environment and Urbanization’s themed issues have included Understanding the Full Spectrum of Risk in Urban Areas, Urban Livelihoods and The Urban Agenda: What is it and Where is it in the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals. Find out more about past and future themes.

Environment and Planning A: Economy and Space has a new title and new aims and scope. This pluralist and heterodox journal of economic research is principally concerned with questions of urban and regional restructuring, globalization, inequality, and uneven development.
This newly launched journal welcomes theoretically robust, empirically rich research from an array of fields including political ecology, environmental justice, science and technology studies, conservation and the environmental humanities. The journal proposes to push the ways we understand the uneven, dynamic, and often unjust intersections of nature and space with particular interest in their societal, political, and economic dimensions.
