Call for Papers - Contemporary Knowledge Systems in Research-Practice
Call for Papers
We are thrilled with the positive response to our call for papers for our October 2023 issue. We have been so pleased to see authors from both Australia and Aotearoa respond to the issue of bringing together research and practice in landscape architecture in Oceania. We hope to see an even wider geographical spread in the future.
Based on this response, we are keen to publish the next issue in April 2024. We continue to interrogate the relationship between academic research and professional practice. We invite authors to foreground the complexities of information gathering processes with contemporary knowledge systems that impact professional practice, research and the overlapping endeavours that bring us together.
Information has never been so abundant, accessible, up-to-date and global. In the past, it was common to own personal and organisational libraries of books but print-based works have been superseded by other more up-to-date international sources. According to some, baby boomers frequently use printed books, newspapers, magazines, videos, academic journals and social media, in that order. Younger generations such as Gen Z, however, choose social media, video, online web sites and finally books, mostly e-books, as their preferred tools. The diversity of voices has risen dramatically but selecting who and what is heard by audiences has also become far more challenging. To support these changes, cultural protocols, search engines, open access journals, generative AI and copyright licensing, have attempted to mitigate the adverse impacts of the information revolution. The impact of these changes on landscape architecture is as yet largely unexplored.
Landscape Review is thus interested in contributions for the next issue that interrogate the relationship between research and professional practice through either written articles, videos, critiques or reports. They may focus on, but are not limited to:
- knowledges beyond the Eurocentric paradigm;
- impacts of artificial intelligence on research and professional practice;
- critical reflections on using new information sources;
- barriers and enablers to finding meaningful information for projects;
- information gathering tools and methods for projects;
- secondary information sources and their uses;
- key issues tackled by both researchers and practitioners.
Deadline: 01 November 2023
