Built Environment: call for submissions to special issue on food systems planning

Deadline: 14 November 2016 - 12:00am

The journal Built Environment is pleased to announce a special issue and one-time award focused on scholarship on city and regional food systems in collaboration with the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York; and Cardiff University.

Built Environment will publish a special issue to address how the growing engagement of the planning and design disciplines within city and regional food systems subverts, reinforces, or exacerbates inequities and injustices. Authors are invited to submit articles that explore how planning and design may be used to create and strengthen city and regional food systems, while explicitly considering imbalances in equity, justice, and power.

Authors are welcome to write about one or more sectors of city and regional food systems. Articles may focus on scholarship that addresses food systems at varying scales, ranging from small towns to large cities and regions.

To have a manuscript be considered for the special issue, interested authors must submit an abstract of no more than 300 words (not including references) to editors by November 14, 2016.
