Please forward to potentially interested parties:

Technology has long been considered not only as a discrete tool but as a
system for organizing ideas, practices, and politics. Our understanding of
technology both as a tool and an ideology has been shaped recently by
widespread and pronounced discourses of the "new": identities, interfaces
and institutions. To complicate and perhaps reject the corporate presentism
that tends to pervade such accounts, we invite submissions for exploring
the place of technology in history. Why is technology important for
thinking not just about the present but about the past? How has technology
changed our very ideas about history? About the writing of history? The
Winter 2004 issue of Reconstruction, "Technology and Historiography," will
be dedicated to exploring these questions.

Reconstruction <http://www.reconstruction.ws> is a culture studies journal
dedicated to fostering an intellectual community composed of scholars and
their audience, granting them all the opportunity and ability to share
thoughts and opinions on the most important and influential work in
contemporary interdisciplinary studies.

"Technology and Historiography" will be published January 21,
2004. Submissions should be received no later than October 13, 2003 for
consideration. This issue is guest-edited by Haidee Wasson, McKnight
Landgrant Professor of Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature at the
University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.

Submissions are encouraged from a variety of perspectives, including, but
not limited to: geography, cultural studies, folklore, architecture,
history, sociology, psychology, communications, music, political science,
semiotics, theology, art history, queer theory, literature, criminology,
urban planning, gender studies, theater and performance studies, etc. Both
theoretical and empirical approaches are welcomed.

In matters of citation, it is assumed that the proper MLA format will be
followed. Other citation formats are acceptable in respect to the
disciplinary concerns of the author.

All submissions and submission queries should be written care of
submissions_at_reconstruction.ws. Large files, such as Flash movies or essays
with many large pictures, should be sent on a zip disk or CD-R to:

Reconstruction
