The Art of Artertainment:
Nobrow, American Style
Many of our current cultural practices are marked by a union of art and entertainment. Underlined by all-pervasive processes of globalization and digitalization, this union comes in all shapes and sizes, transforming culture so that it can no longer be comfortably classified as high or low, art or genre. Surprisingly, this ‘art of artertainment’ has not, as yet, attracted much scholarly interest. It is with the aim of overcoming this omission that we launch this call for papers.
An Academic Conference at University of Salford, 6-7th April 2018, on the impact and legacy of the 1998 Good Friday/Belfast Agreement.

KULA: Knowledge Creation, Dissemination, and Preservation Studies is a new peer-reviewed, open-access electronic journal based at the University of Victoria Libraries (in Victoria, BC, Canada). KULA, named for the Sanskrit word for “community” and as a reference to the “Kula Plate,” the Pacific Rim Terrane from which Vancouver Island was formed, welcomes multi-disciplinary scholarship on the study of human knowledge processes throughout history. We are interested in both humanistic and technological perspectives on how we have and continue to create, cultivate, disseminate, and preserve knowledge.
