Call for Submissions
_Iconomania: studies in visual culture_

Iconomania is a refereed electronic journal that brings together
outstanding scholarly works addressing a range of methodological and
cultural interests. Located in the Department of Art History at the
University of California, Los Angeles (USA), we are graduate students
concerned with the role of the visual, broadly defined to include the
pictorial, sculptural, spatial, architectural, corporal, filmic,
performative, and so forth in any culture, historical moment, geographic
location, and milieu. Approaching the visual as a cultural signifying
system that shapes class, gender, racial, and sexual subjectivities as it
circulates, we aim to both engage and expand the traditional objects of
study in a wide array of disciplines. We seek theoretically informed and
historically grounded submissions of significant scholarly interest --
though accessible to "web-surfing" non-academics -- from graduate
students, independent scholars and established academics. Finally, the
journal supports projects exploring the prospects, conditions and
constraints for culture, identity and experience in our publishing medium,
the World Wide Web.

We are currently accepting for consideration papers, multi-media projects,
original digital art, and reviews of books, CD-ROMs and Web sites for the
volume to be published throughout the current academic year. The deadline
for the first installment of the cumulative volume is February 10, 1997 (but
we accept manu/digi-scripts continually). Submissions should be roughly 3000
words (plus notes conforming to the Chicago Manual of Style) and, where
possible, submitted in a digital media (see our Web site).
