Re-visions: The journal of international postgraduate students' art & design research.

Issue 2: Visualising Identities

Re-Visions is an international postgraduate journal which presents articles, practices as research and reviews, specializing in art and design research. The journal focuses on critical analysis and discourses of relevance to current and contemporary postgraduate research. We would, therefore, like to encourage both theoretical and practice-based contributions from postgraduate students at universities in the United Kingdom and internationally. Submissions can concern theory or practice, or both.

This issue of Re-visions will investigate identities through a diverse range of visual forms and practices. It aims to re – iterate the way in which the visual - in its many genres and ever-changing guises changing- can be understood and interpreted as a form of knowledge: an identity. This knowledge could address issues of subjectivity but it could also pose an understanding of the way in which sense is made and its rhetoric analyzed through the visual.

Papers, Practice as Research, and Reviews are invited on issues related to the following themes;

• Performed Identities
• Still Image / Portrait as Identity
• Geographical Identities / Located Identities
• Materialising Identities
• Imagined Identities

The Re-visions editorial group also invite reviews of exhibitions and written publications and any form of visual submissions, for which we have specifically dedicated gallery sections.

All papers are subjected to a double-blind system of peer review.
For notes on required format of submissions, see our notes to contributors at http://www.lboro.ac.uk/departments/sota/research/re-visions/Callforcontr...
Please send papers to: Re-Visions.Journal@lboro.ac.uk
