Vectors Journal of Culture and Technology in a Dynamic Vernacular is now accepting richly multimedia submissions on the themes of "perception," "difference" or "memory." These submissions will be accepted over the next several year, depending on the topic. For further details and specific deadlines, please see http://www.vectorsjournal.org/index.php?page=3|2

We are also pleased to announce the launch of our Spring 2006 issue devoted to the theme of Ephemera: http://www.vectorsjournal.net
 
This issue of Vectors features a range of projects related to the theme of ephemera, from the perspectives of history, anthropology, cultural geography, film, media studies, video games, tourism, politics, art and literature. Contributors include Rick Prelinger, Judith Jackson Fossett, Amelie Hastie, Melanie Swalwell, Jeffrey Schnapp, Kim Christen, Chris Cooney, the Center for History and New Media and the Transcriptions Project at UC Santa Barbara.
 
Vectors is an international peer-reviewed electronic journal dedicated to expanding the potentials of academic publication via emergent and transitional media. Publishing two issues a year, Vectors proposes a thorough rethinking of the dynamic relationship of form to content in academic research, focusing on the ways technology shapes, transforms and reconfigures social and cultural relations. Vectors is edited by Tara McPherson and Steve Anderson with art direction by Erik Loyer and Raegan Kelly.
 
Please share this announcement widely. We also invite you to explore past issues devoted to the themes of Evidence and Mobility in the Vectors Archive and contribute to an ongoing dialogue with project creators and readers via the Vectors Forums.
