Call for Papers: Carolina Planning Journal, Volume 46

Carolina Planning Journal (CPJ) is pleased to announce its call for papers for Volume 46 of the Journal, to be published May 2021.

In response to recent events of police violence against Blacks and other people of color, as well as national Black Lives Matter activism, CPJ’s upcoming issue will focus on how race intersects with planning. Specifically, Volume 46 will focus on whiteness in urban planning: how planning creates, perpetuates, and normalizes racialized advantage for whites while simultaneously pathologizing and disadvantaging Black communities and other communities of color. Please see the call for papers below for further details.

Responsive submissions are welcomed from authors of all backgrounds, including but not limited to practitioners and academics in public health, history, geography, sociology, social work, economics, public policy, public administration, and law. CPJ staff will work with authors of accepted articles during the winter and spring to edit and refine their pieces prior to publication. The print publication of the Journal reaches roughly 1,000 annual subscribers, and digital versions of each article will be indexed by Google Scholar for free online access.
