Geography

Editor in Chief | Editorial Board | Articles and Contributors | Graduate Award

Geography is the study of the earth’s surface, including its physical, biological, and social systems. It is concerned with how people shape and in turn are shaped by the natural and ecological systems around them, how societies create landscapes and places, and the spatial distributions of many kinds of phenomena. The discipline seeks to describe and explain why different phenomena are located where they are and how their spatial patterns change over time. Geographers also study how people perceive and represent their worlds, including maps of all sorts as well as textual and visual depictions. Many geographers rely on sophisticated technological systems in this respect, including remote sensing and geographical information systems. As a field that is consciously interdisciplinary in nature, geography has welcomed contributions from sociology, history, atmospheric sciences, geology, economics, anthropology, zoology, and botany, among others.

The role that geography continues to play in helping understand a more holistic view of life on earth is crucial, but its multidisciplinary nature and its embrace of multiple methodologies and epistemologies makes it challenging for students and scholars to stay current about every part of the discipline. A great deal of this work has moved online, with the most recent scholarship, research, and statistics appearing in online databases. Researchers and practitioners at all levels need tools that help them filter through the proliferation of information sources to find material that is reliable and directly relevant to their inquiries. Oxford Bibliographies in Geography offers a means to navigate through the vast amounts of books, publications, and other materials that have appeared over the last several decades.

 

Editor in Chief

Barney Warf is a Professor of Geography at the University of Kansas. His research and teaching interests lie within the broad domain of human geography. Much of his research concerns economic geography, emphasizing services and telecommunications. His work straddles contemporary political economy and social theory on the one hand and traditional quantitative, empirical approaches on the other. He has studied a range of topics that fall under the umbrella of globalization, including New York as a global city, telecommunications, offshore banking, international networks of financial and producer services, and the geographies of the Internet. He has also written on military spending, voting technologies, the U.S. electoral college, and religious diversity. He is the editor of the six-volume Encyclopedia of Geography (2010), and currently is the editor of The Professional Geographer and co-editor of Growth and Change.

GRADUATE STUDENT ARTICLE AWARD

The Oxford Bibliographies Graduate Student Article Award is an annual, invitation-only award that offers experienced doctoral candidates an opportunity to contribute to Oxford Bibliographies in Geography, to draw attention to their work, and to add a peer-reviewed publication to their CVs. Invitation is by faculty nomination only. Nominations are now being accepted.

“Graduate students are by necessity deeply and critically engaged in the literature within emerging areas of research. This knowledge puts them in an ideal position to write for Oxford Bibliographies. I am particularly excited about the potential of this award as a pathway to including articles on cutting-edge topics, and I think it is an important acknowledgement of the significant contribution graduate students routinely make to the production of new scholarship.”

--Damon Zucca, Reference and Online Publisher, Oxford University Press

We want to hear from you.
