CALL FOR PAPERS:
 A Camera Obscura “Archive for the Future”

The editors of Camera Obscura: Feminism, Culture, and Media Studies invite the
journal’s readers to contribute statements of 500–1000 words that consider,
contemplate, entertain, and/or imagine the future of “feminism, culture, and
media studies.” Selected contributions will be published in a special issue to
mark the thirtieth anniversary of the journal. What lines of inquiry and
approaches to these terms and to this nexus do you find most engaging? What
lines do you expect to find most productive in the future? How do you see the
conjuncture of “feminism, culture, and media studies” as intersecting with
other discourses, disciplines, and practices? How does your sense of the
future of this conjuncture reflect your understanding of its history? How
would you characterize the changes in feminist culture and media studies, and
how do you see those changes as related (or removed from) the changes within
the media and cultural practices themselves? What theories, methodologies,
objects, texts, and/or practices would you want to revive or re-energize at
this point? What would you want to eulogize or mourn? In sum, what would you
submit to a Camera Obscura “archive for the future,” and why?

Please send three copies of your statement, including complete contact
information, to:
Camera Obscura
Department of Film Studies
University of California, Santa Barbara, CA 93106-4010.

Selected submissions will appear in consecutive issues of the journal, beginning
with Camera Obscura 61, a special issue marking the thirtieth anniversary of the
journal.
