Contemporaneity: Historical Presence in Visual Culture is now accepting submissions for Issue 4.
Contemporaneity: Historical Presence in Visual Culture aims to explore how the complexities of being in time find visual form. Crucial to this undertaking is accounting for how, from prehistory to the present, cultures around the world conceive of and construct their present and the concept of presentness visually. Through scholarly writings from a number of academic disciplines in the humanities, together with contributions from artists and filmmakers, Contemporaneity maps the diverse ways in which cultures use visual means to record, define, and interrogate their historical context and presence in time.
For our forthcoming issue, we seek submissions from scholars, artists, and filmmakers. Proposals for book and exhibition reviews, interviews or scholarly discussions will also be considered. We encourage submissions from artists and filmmakers, recognizing that these submissions may take many forms.
The deadline for submissions is September 30, 2013.
