Dare to push yourself in new ways. We are a truly interdisciplinary journal published primarily in print but with a strong web presence. We want beautifully crafted, previously unpublished non-fiction narratives: reflective essays, memoirs, experimental truth-telling, poetry, prose poetry, photo essays, original artwork, and interviews. We hope to create an engaging intersection where writing, poetry, and artwork can converge in one space to be enjoyed by readers and writers deeply engaged with the culture, though not through an academic lens. Your smart best friend should enjoy Broad Street as much as your theory-steeped professor. Think NPR. Think New Yorker. Think Broad Street.

Critical Juncture: The Work of Art in Disability Studies, Queer Studies, and Race
Emory Conference Center Hotel, Atlanta, Georgia 17-18 March 2017
Critical Juncture is an international conference uniting those who cross traditional boundaries of academic disciplines. Now in its fourth year at Emory University, Critical Juncture is more than just a conference—it is an intersectional forum for emerging scholars, artists, and activists to present their work and to advocate for social justice.
What is a diagram? How do maps, charts, plans, DNA sequencing, weather mapping, computer glitches and Internet cartography blur the boundaries between ‘art’ and ‘information’? Drain calls for artworks, thought experiments, essays and reviews that explore how data has been weaved into artworks and in the other direction, artworks into data. How are surveillance, spying, data collection explored by artists? Does Google Earth problematize artists’ relationships with space and mapping? Is there an algorithmic aesthetics? What is at the source of the renewed artistic interest in Cybernetics?

Isabelle Stengers calls for a cosmopolitics that will allow an “ecology of practices” to flourish. We seek papers that explore the tensions and potentials that arise when ways of knowing collide. How do new and emergent ways of knowing interact with established systems of knowledge? How has this process occurred historically as well as in the present? How are emerging epistemologies created, consolidated, and defended? By whom and for what purposes?
