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 ‘Trash: Cycles of the Im_Material’ and explores the question of how trash haunts the different material, societal, and cultural realms from which it has once been discarded. Focusing on the cyclic nature of trash, this issue is interested in the material entanglements of trash, the haunting presence of waste and plastic, and trash’s capacity of re-emerging in the immaterial realms of culture.

Submissions are possible for all past and future issues, topics so far have included:
