Cultural Geographies + Rewriting the Earth

Series Editors: Paul Kingsbury & Arun Saldanha

Cultural geography has witnessed profound changes in recent years on three interrelated levels: theoretical, methodological, and sociopolitical. In terms of theory, new conceptions of culture have emerged that examine social and geographical differentiation as involving objects, affect, nonhumans, mobility, emotion, queerness, assemblage, materiality, the unconscious, biopolitics, relationality, and intersectionality.
This series, Cultural Geographies + Rewriting the Earth, provides a forum for cutting-edge research that embraces theoretical creativity, methodological experimentation, and ethico-political urgency. It provides a forum for a wide readership who desire to keep up with the innovations, debates, and agendas that define the humanities and social sciences today.

Outward Odyssey: A People’s History of Spaceflight

Series Editor: Colin Burgess

These books place equal emphasis on the Soviets and the Americans and give priority to people over technology and nationalism. Series brings to life experiences that shaped the lives of astronauts and cosmonauts and forever changed their world and ours.
