Environment and Planning D: Society and Space

Environment and Planning D: Society and Space is an international and interdisciplinary journal that provides a forum for the discussion of the mutually constitutive relation between the social and the spatial. It seeks to be philosophically sophisticated, to be practically relevant, and to concretely theorise a range of contemporary, historical, political, and cultural contexts.

After the Pop-Up Games: London's Never-Ending Regeneration
Abstract. This paper examines the temporality of urban planning in contemporary London, especially with regard to the 2012 Olympic Games. I argue that planners and officials deployed a rhetoric of permanence to validate not only the Games themselves,...
Contradiction, Intervention, and Urban Low Carbon Transitions
Abstract. This paper presents an analysis of contradictions in urban low carbon transitions as engines of change. Following Kojeve's reading of contradiction in Hegel's oeuvre, I argue that contradiction is a constitutive feature of low carbon interventions....
Corporate Personhood and the Corporate Body: The Case of Former Energy Giant Enron on Trial for Fraud
Abstract. This paper queries the concept of corporate personhood by investigating how metaphors of the body were deployed in court testimony during Enron's corporate fraud trial in 2006. Two distinct metaphors are discussed as they relate to representations...
Disrupting Migration Stories: Reading Life Histories through the Lens of Mobility and Fixity
Abstract. It has been argued that the 'mobility turn' is overcelebratory regarding human movement across space. Yet, critical studies of mobilities have emerged that refute this, demonstrating how various forms and aspects of mobility are bound up...
Field Recording and the Sounding of Spaces
Abstract. This paper concerns the spatial functions of field recordings, defined as audio recordings of the myriad soundings of the world. I suggest that field recordings are doing geographical work outside the usual academic repertoire of texts, numbers,...

Securing and Scaling Resilient Futures: Neoliberalization, Infrastructure, and Topologies of Power
Abstract. In this paper we explore the scaling of resilience policy and practice not as an effect upon infrastructure but as enacted through infrastructure. Drawing on Foucault's topological analyses of governmental power, especially his elaboration...
Situated Solidarities and the Practice of Scholar-Activism
Abstract. Drawing on an analysis of an ongoing collaboration with rural peasant movements in Bangladesh, we explore the possibility of forging solidarity through practices of scholar-activism. In so doing, we consider the practice of reflexivity, reconsider...
Topologies of Vulnerability and the Proliferation of Camp Life
Abstract. An important theoretical insight in critical geography of late has been the conceptual reevaluation of space topologically, in a manner that moves us away from an insistence on topographical priority. Unlike topography that relies on fixity,...
Zapatismo: Other Geographies Circa "The End of the World"
Abstract. A chorus of activists and intellectuals claim that the Zapatista Army of National Liberation has either ceased to exist or become politically irrelevant for Mexico and the world. In this paper I put forward the rather different thesis that...
