Fieldwork – Photography Journal

Call for Papers / Photographic Work

Space, Location and Territory

Fieldwork is dedicated to publishing innovative work in contemporary photographic research. The journal is a forum for practitioners, writers and theorists to explore ideas and debates motivating new photographic work and new photographic thinking.

The Photography Research Group at UCLan is putting out a call for work on the theme of Space, Location and Territory for the inaugural edition of the peer-reviewed journal. This first edition of Fieldwork will investigate the social, political and cultural interpretations of landscapes and highlight the diversity of practices employed to explore, map and narrativize such terrains. A special emphasis will be placed on new emergent geographies, and work that deals with the contested nature of space and the problematics of practices aligned with it.

The editors will consider submissions of academic papers of 3,000 – 4,000 words, visual projects in the form of photographic and film work, hybrid or experimental pieces or work that employs a trans-disciplinary approach to the theme. All enquiries or submissions (including guidance notes on the editorial style of written submissions) should be sent by November 1st 2013 to the editors at the e-mails:
