Ekistics and The New Habitat: Announcements https://ekisticsjournal.org/index.php/journal <p>The new online journal of<em><strong> Ekistics and the New&nbsp;Habitat</strong></em>,&nbsp;aims to connect the practice of Ekistics with sustainable development practice for all types,&nbsp;scales, and bounded frames of human settlements: urban, rural or remote; traditional or modern; formal or informal; on and off-world, and in developed or lesser developed contexts. We also aim to extend the Ekistics framework in terms of how we now understand settlement sustainability, livability, advanced technologies (including the role of the "internet of stuff"), and human wellbeing through the complex and adaptive dynamics at play.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong><em>Ekistics and the New Habitat</em> </strong>provides&nbsp;an excellent platform for researchers, educators, policymakers and students, to submit work&nbsp;for <strong>Double-Blind, Peer Reviewed articles. &nbsp;</strong>Topics may range in scale of human settlement, to data-driven patterns&nbsp;and&nbsp;systems, to the human&nbsp;scale of people-centred design, or to propositions of a&nbsp;grand theory where ecology and climate interact with the settlements economy, design, technology and its residents&nbsp;and visitors. &nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> en-US News: Update #3: Turkey, urbanism and the new habitat - full papers are soon due https://ekisticsjournal.org/index.php/journal/announcement/view/9 <p>Closing date for full papers due 31st July 2019, no extensions<br><a href="https://us16.campaign-archive.com/?u=3394fda9c2399584a13dd8c6b&amp;id=3ae6a70673" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://us16.campaign-archive.com/?u=3394fda9c2399584a13dd8c6b&amp;id=3ae6a70673</a></p> Ekistics and The New Habitat 2019-07-04 News: Call for 250 word paper proposals.

The journal has provided an interdisciplinary forum for the scientific study of human settlements since the 1950’s.</span></p> <br> <br> A special issue planned for May 2020, <strong>‘The Global Pacific: Island and Coastal Human Habitats’,</strong> will examine how diverse Pacific epistemologies, sustainable development initiatives and urban design are informing responses to global issues such as climate change.&nbsp;<br> <br> In 1993, Tongan intellectual Epili Hau’ofa called for a reconceptualisation of the Pacific as a ‘Sea of Islands’. This call instigated a new approach for those working in the Pacific to treat it as a blue continent covering almost a third of the globe. The Pacific is home to dynamic arts, initiatives and fields of research that are driving renewed interest in the region, and providing new perspectives on global issues such as climate change, resilience building, migration, sustainable development, trade, security, ecology and health.&nbsp;<br> &nbsp;<br> In the age of the&nbsp;<em>anthropocene</em>, Pacific nations are at the forefront. Not only are they facing the effects of climate change sooner and in more severe forms than other regions, Pacific communities are negotiating global identities throughout their diasporas which span the globe. The networks and migration patterns, rural and urban challenges, health care initiatives and economic projects are potential models for other regions throughout the world.<br> &nbsp;<br> This issue seeks papers from&nbsp;architecture, urban design and planning practitioners, academics, researchers and artists which posit and analyse the&nbsp;problems of human settlements and new habitats in the Pacific region.</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <!-- [if mso]> </td> <![endif]--> <!-- [if mso]> <td valign="top" width="300" style="width:300px;"> <![endif]--> <table class="mcnTextContentContainer" style="max-width: 300px; border-collapse: collapse; mso-table-lspace: 0pt; mso-table-rspace: 0pt; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;" border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" align="left"> <tbody> <tr> <td class="mcnTextContent" style="mso-line-height-rule: exactly; -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%; word-break: break-word; color: #0d465a; font-family: Helvetica; font-size: 16px; line-height: 150%; text-align: left; padding: 0 18px 9px 18px;" valign="top">S<span style="font-size: 14px;">pecial attention will be paid to perspectives that explore global issues in a Pacific context, or Pacific perspectives on global issues.
