Call for Submissions for Sensate Journal. Deadline: Sept. 30, 2012

Call for Submissions – Sensate Journal for Experiments in Critical Media Practice

Sensate is a new online interdisciplinary journal publishing works of critical media practice. It is currently accepting submissions from academics, scientists and artists interested in working on collaborative projects which cross the boundaries between research and making.

Building on the groundswell of pioneering activities in the digital humanities, scholarly publishing, and innovative media practice, we believe in creating a space for redefining the terms in which such collaborations can be presented, articulating modes of working that are derived from artistic practice with revised standards for peer-reviewed academic production. It is with this goal in mind that Sensate aims at publishing innovative projects in the arts, humanities, and sciences, providing a forum for scholarly and artistic experiments not conducive to the printed page.

Call for Submissions and Reviews

Exploring new ways to archive, curate, and organize academic multimedia scholarship, Sensate invites submissions of scholarship and art not conducive to the printed page. We encourage submissions that creatively bridge research and media-based work, and aim beyond an illustrative relation between text and image towards both solid and innovative modes of scholarship and artistic practice.

The integration of form and content is crucial to our mission and thus rather than a list of guiding questions (which seek answers) we would like to offer a list of possible approaches that demonstrate efforts to unite form and content and to provoke inquiry through creative combinations of exposition and expression.

We are currently seeking work in any of the following categories/disciplines: artistic research, visual arts and artistic practice, history of technology and the media arts, visual anthropology and sensory ethnography, digital humanities, sound studies, media archeology, digital collections of audio and/or visual materials, digital cartography, performance and its documentation, imaging scientific research, and creative data visualization. We also welcome submissions that extend beyond these possibilities.

Sensate pieces may rework or expand traditional scholarship in a media rich context, or provide a space to remediate artistic projects in a new form. See our collection of published works at sensatejournal.com.

We are also seeking reviews for films, events, books, exhibitions, and performances. Please visit our blog, Sensate.tumblr.com, for updates on calls for specific reviews.

Submissions are due by September 30th.
Please use the Chicago Manual of Style for all citations.

Please submit articles via our article submissions form, and reviews via our review submissions form, both found on our website, SensateJournal.com.

Presentation Text

In conjunction with the opening days of FotoTriennale.dk, the popular, international Meeting Place Portfolio Review will once again take place at Brandts in Odense. Meeting Place Portfolio Review is a professional forum for one-to-one meetings between photographers and international experts. In the course of four intense days, participating photographers will have the opportunity to present their work to 28 international curators, museum directors, gallery owners, magazine editors, publishers and festival directors, who can offer constructive feedback, good contacts and assist with advice on future career development – or perhaps facilitate an exhibition or a publication. The invited reviewers, on the other hand, will have the chance to discover new talent as well as seeing the latest work of established photographers.

The FotoTriennale.dk portfolio review at Brandts is the only international review in Denmark. Since the event was first held in 2000 it has contributed significantly to the career development of both national and international photographers. In 2009 more than 80 photographers from around the world took part in this major photographic event. The invited reviewers came from 14 countries to partake and the event was very successful. You can read a selection of reports and success stories from both photographers and reviewers at http://fototriennale.dk/en/portfolio-review/success-stories

———— Spanish and Portuguese versions below ————

SP-Arte invites young curators to participate in a Curatorial Lab and trips to the Biennials of Venice and Istanbul. This call seems to be focused on Latin American Curators, as I do not find an English version. But maybe you are from a region such as Haiti or Guyana and do not speak Portuguese? Seems the organizers have not taken this possibility into account. Anyways, here comes the information, in Spanish and Portuguese. Good luck!
