Environment, Space, Place

International Association for the Study of Environment, Space, and Place (IASESP)

Environment, Space, Place
Editors: Troy R. E. Paddock and C. Patrick Heidkamp
A transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary journal dedicated to the study of environmental, spatial, and place-oriented dimensions of knowledge.

Environment, Space, Place (ESP) seeks to publish transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary research dedicated to the study of environmental, spatial, and place-oriented dimensions of knowledge in ways that are meaningful beyond the boundaries of traditional academic disciplines. Fundamentally, we are interested in promoting conversations about how people think about and experience various kinds of environments, spaces, and places: real, virtual, mythical, or imagined. Central to the mission of this journal is fostering discussion of how humanity interacts with and within its various environments. Given recent political happenings in the Western world, we hope that ESP can open up additional space for thoughtful and critical discussion of vital issues and be a platform for different approaches to knowledge and understanding. We are interested in how various peoples and cultures have framed their understanding(s) of their lived experiences and their environments, as well as how conflicting understandings are negotiated in order to maintain cohesion, if not consensus.
