ASAP/Journal, the new scholarly journal of ASAP: The Association for the Study of the Arts of the Present, is accepting articles and artist interviews as well as alternative format criticism for its 2016 and 2017 volumes. Journal issues are published triannually by the Johns Hopkins University Press.

We seek well informed scholarly writing that excites new ideas and analyzes groundbreaking movements, moments, and works of literary, media, visual, musical, or performing art after 1960. We also consider articles that re-vision relationships between the contemporary arts and the art of previous periods. Articles exploring world arts, new aesthetic theories and new techniques and forms, interrelations between the contemporary arts fields, and international perspectives are particularly welcomed.

Interviews and dialogues are invited that feature emerging or established literary, media, visual arts, performing, and musical artists who are creating art that is changing the vital and shifting landscapes of the contemporary arts. We feature one artist interview per issue.
