Volume 8 CALL FOR PAPERS!: Yesterday’s Contemporaneity: Finding Temporality in the Past

 

UPDATE: DEADLINE EXTENDED- The deadline for submissions is now October 26, 2018.


Volume 8 seeks to publish examinations of contemporaneity across a wider variety of historical contexts. The aim is to uncover how cultures throughout the global past have negotiated temporalities, modernities, and historicisms, to come to terms with what it means to be present in their own moment. How can both history and modernity be visualized, contextualized, or conceptualized to create a sense of contemporaneity? How have institutions created temporalities for the cultures they study, and how can a historical object or space shape perceptions of a culture’s identity or agency? What is at stake in defining a work of art’s place in time?

DEADLINE EXTENDED! CFP: Boundless: Art and Identification across Borders

 

The deadline for submissions has been extended to November 30, 2016.

For Edition 6, Contemporaneity seeks submissions that deal with the complexity of art and identification in time and space. Submissions that deal with the effect of borders on national and regional identities are particularly welcome; we also encourage historical scrutiny and theoretical analysis on borders and race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, religion, and other categories of identification. How have different identities experienced border or boundary crossings differently? What borders have been erected to insulate normative identities and how have the arts served to reify or challenge these essentialist categories of identity? How has the articulation of concepts of identity evolved and inflected past and present discussions of particular identities?
