[UPDATE] The Politics of African Contemporary Art - submission deadline March 8, 2013

updated: 
Thursday, January 31, 2013 - 4:38pm
Seismopolite Journal of Art and Politics

Recent approaches to African contemporary art often celebrate the advent of a global contemporary art scene in which they see an abolition of the provincialist and historicist concepts that were imposed by the West during the colonial period. One assumes that by taking part in new and post-historical/ post-national networks of exchange, facilitated by large-scale international exhibitions, biennials and fairs, artists can express themselves more truly as they are no longer doomed to wrestle with the notions of the pre-colonial/ colonial; to be measured against Western art-historical paradigms, or to be defined via enduring fictions about their own parochialism.

Steampunk and the City, FEB 15

updated: 
Thursday, January 31, 2013 - 9:58am
Brian Croxall and Rachel Bowser

We are soliciting abstracts for essays that consider in one way or another representations of the city in steampunk. The term "city" should be understood widely to signify large and small urban spaces and need not be limited to a particular geography or time period. As texts, essays could consider one or more of the following: literature (including YA lit), film, graphic novels, anime, as well as fandom and performance.

The essay will be part of an edited collection exploring steampunk in its literary, filmic, material and fan culture instantiations. The editors have met with multiple university presses who have expressed enthusiastic interest. Completed essays will be expected in early summer 2013.
