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. Our most recent Calls for Abstracts focus on ‘Illness, Narrated’ and ‘Ambiguity’. The latter seeks to explore ambiguity in its potential and limits as an analytical tool for research in the study of culture. By the same token, the issue is also interested in perspectives on ambiguity as a cultural phenomenon in its historical situatedness and political dimensions.
Submissions are possible for all past and future issues, topics so far have included:
- Issue 12: Ambiguity
- Issue 11: Illness, Narrated
- Issue 10: Metaphors of Migration
- Issue 9: Love
- Issue 8: Distribution
- Issue 7: Critique
- Issue 6: Surveillance Cultures
- Issue 5: Indigeneities
- Issue 4: Screened Alterities
- Issue 3: Law Undone
- Issue 2: The Nonhuman
- Issue 1: Emergence/Emergency
We would like to invite everyone, including scholars and students, artists or journalists, to add to the growing selection of pieces. If you are interested in contributing a _Perspective, please send us an abstract that details your contribution and its connection to one of the CfAs at any time: firstname.lastname@example.org.
