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 ‘Metaphors of Migration’ and ‘Illness, Narrated’. The latter considers the relationship between illness and narrative, and the extent to which these concepts can be seen as mutually constitutive. The issue seeks to gather new approaches and critical perspectives to the intricate relationship between narrative and illness and welcomes (inter)disciplinary contributions addressing the concepts’ entanglement on an individual, societal, and global level.

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


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:
