Kerb Journal | Call for Submissions

Kerb is an internationally recognised journal of landscape architecture, edited and funded by students. Produced by RMIT University for close to three decades, it has served as a testbed for the critical explorations of a host of landscape architecture and city-making professionals.   The editors are currently seeking submissions for this year’s edition with the theme of

Decentre: Designing for coexistence in a time of crisis.
The global climate and ecological crisis we are experiencing have been created by humans. In this crisis, we encounter our ecological entanglement and the destructive lineage of ideas and institutions that have conceived of humans as detached, special and centred.

In Kerb 28, we look with a broad lens towards ideas, practices and knowledge that better enable coexistence. In what ways do these offer a departure from the predominant modes of societal agency? What role can design play in imagining and embracing forms of agency that will allow us to co-inhabit earth with non-humans? 

Kerb is a Journal of Landscape Architecture although submissions are open to all disciplines.

Submissions of abstracts for text and image-based work. The expression of interest (EOI) is open to a maximum 200-word abstract or description, ideally with an accompanying image.

Submissions close on the 18th of April 2020.
