Thought, engagement and communication of meanings depend upon perception. Synæsthesia is an international, multi-media refereed journal that aims to unravel issues of communication and considers the extra dimensions of meaning that layer communication practices and contemporary theoretical frameworks. From the subjective-embodied to the objective, interpersonal to mass-marketed, regional to global, and academic to corporate, among genders and across time, Synæsthesia strives to traverse disciplinary boundaries, seeking to advance new perspectives of understanding within and across cultures.

Synæsthesia managing editors Dr. Christopher Melley and Dr. Daniel Broudy are pleased to announce that this edition of the journal will be co-edited by Dr. Jeffery Klaehn (editor of The Political Economy of Media and Power, 2010).

Synæsthesia invites submissions for an upcoming edition of the journal (Vol. 2, no. 1) devoted to ‘Video Gaming’ – proposed articles should aim to enliven scholarly debate and discussions about video games and gaming and may focus on video games as cultural, economic, political, or social artifacts and/or customs; or constructions and/or reproductions of fantasy, reality, or domination within contemporary society.

Articles are rigorously peer-reviewed. Scholarly work accepted for publication in the online journal will receive subsequent consideration for publication of future collected volumes. The editors seek articles, essays, reviews and photo journalistic work rigorous in scholarship yet accessible in style for audiences somewhat wider than highly trained specialists in areas of communication, sociology, media studies, discourse analysis, semiotics, rhetoric, education, the visual arts, or literature.

Submissions lodged by e-mail should include a title, abstract, author's name, and institutional affiliation. Including in the subject line of your e-mail submission the proposed title of your essay/paper will help us parse spam from legitimate inquiries. Manuscripts attached to e-mail submissions should be saved in the MSWord .doc(x) format. Visit www.synaesthesiajournal.com for details on submissions.

Deadline for submissions: 31 December 2012
