India is one of the few countries in the world to have a film censor board. And one of its recent casualties is a lesbian film significantly titled "Unfreedom." The current government has upped the ante by extending the ban culture of censorship from the aesthetic realm to the realm of everyday consumption with the ban on beef. The ban on Jafar Panahi, the Iranian filmmaker, continues and he continues to express himself in his art form in house arrest. The recent Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris has put the limelight back on censorship.
The quint's twenty eighth issue is issuing a call for theoretically informed and historically grounded submissions of scholarly interest—as well as creative writing, original art, interviews, and reviews of books.
The deadline for this call is 15th August 2015—but please note that we accept manu/digi-scripts at any time.
All contributions accompanied by a short biography will be forwarded to a member of the editorial board.

Air and the Visual Session
Association of Art Historians 2016 Conference
University of Edinburgh
7–9 April 2016
'The air is unique among the elements in having this affinity with nothingness, in signifying the being of non-being, the matter of the immaterial' (Steven Connor, The Matter of Air, 31).
The study day we organized on April 21st 2015 investigated the theme "Order and Disorder" in different fields. Several participants were enthusiastic about the theme and presented an important selection of papers which covered such panels as reflections on order and disorder in the literary imagination, innovation and education, formation and information, social and political order in the contemporary world.
As a theme for an international symposium, we need to pursue the investigation into these fields but also extend it to other spheres such as art and linguistics.
