Call for _Perspectives
On_Culture: The Open Journal for the Study of Culture is a biannual, peer-reviewed academic Open Access journal that also features the section _Perspectives devoted to shorter, creative pieces pertaining to each concept-based issue. You’re welcome to submit interviews, opinion pieces, reviews of exhibitions and events, photo galleries, videos, works of art… and more! Our platform allows for the presentation of various media, from textual formats, film and images to hybrid and experimental forms.
These contributions can be submitted at any time on a rolling basis.
The themes and concepts of previous issues range from the Nonhuman to Alterity or Surveillance Cultures, all Calls for Abstracts you can find in our archive. The most recent issue focuses on ‘Present Futures’ and seeks to investigate how various concepts and imaginaries of the future can be made fruitful for the present.
