The latest issues of the Society’s academic journals are now available online.
This quarter’s issue of Area features a series of papers on troubling institutions at the nexus of care and control, guest edited by Dr Tom Disney and Dr Anna Schliehe. They include a discussion on the infrastructure of water in carceral spaces; an examination of the nature of care and control in a ‘prison within a prison’ using the Barlinnie Special Unit in Scotland as an example; and a look at how spatial care and control in Finnish nursing homes shapes the everyday life of care home residents. The 2018 Area prize awarded to Simon Dixon for his paper on the city as an emerging landform is also available to read in this issue.
In Geo, the most recent papers have mapped out microbial stories and how these can be managed in a hospital ward environment through handwashing; and have used an interactive online oceanographic modelling and particulate tracking tool to model the differences in larval duration and potential dispersal rates for El Niňo and La Niňa years.
The Geographical Journal has featured articles on how everyday life and environmental change are entwined in island-based communities in the Maldives; and the impacts that Nicaraguan rural residents’ migration to other Central American countries have on agricultural systems and food security.
This quarter’s issue of Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers includes papers on the cultural geographies of extinction of the Scottish Osprey; how cities can be positioned as active agents in the process of low carbon urban development initiatives; and the relationship between hydro-citizenship, drought management and water governance in England.
Finally, the newest addition to the RGS-IBG book series, Geopolitics and the event: rethinking Britain’s Iraq War through art, is available to pre-order on the Wiley website now.
