Following a successful and engaging session at the RGS-IBG conference earlier this year on Teaching and Learning Emotional Geographies (http://conference.rgs.org/AC2019/303), we are putting together a proposal for a special issue of Journal of Geography in Higher Education (https://www.tandfonline.com/toc/cjgh20/current).
We are looking for a few more papers for the proposal, focused on similar themes to those explored during the conference session, including:
- Emotional geographies as a specialised module/course
- Embedding emotions in the wider geographical curriculum
- Ways to engage with emotions in teaching and learning and innovative teaching practices
- Teaching emotional geographies through relationships and (self-)reflexivity
- Ethics of teaching emotional geographies
- Supervision of student projects on emotional geographies
We already have proposed papers exploring these issues in a range of undergraduate/postgraduate and UK/international contexts, and would welcome contributions that would add to this diversity of experience.
If our proposal is successful, the papers should be 5,000-6,000 words in length and we will be looking for contributions to be submitted around the middle of 2020, although this can be negotiated.
For now, if you are interested in contributing to the proposed special issue, please send your title, abstract (max 250 words), name, affiliation and email contact to Matej Blazek (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Alison Stenning (email@example.com) by Wednesday December 11th 2019.
