What does planning for just futures look like? Or, put another way, can planning be saved? Such questions ask us to think both within the field of planning and beyond it, to undo planning and recreate it.
Critical Planning, the graduate-student-run journal of UCLA Urban Planning, invites submission for Volume 26: Just Futures. The editors invite pieces that elucidate and elevate practices of and toward just futures. We are interested in submissions that interrogate the boundaries or limits of planning, whether as a profession, as a field of scholarship, or as an insurgent practice for realizing more just futures. To that end we encourage submissions from multiple disciplines and practices including but not limited to urban planning, history, art, architecture, ethnic studies, gender studies, geography, sociology, or anthropology. We welcome both traditional academic formats as well as multimedia, multisensory submissions.
EXTENDED DEADLINE for submissions: Jan 15, 2022
Anticipated publication date: Fall of 2022.
