The Contemporary

Wednesday, November 9, 2016 - 10:39am
Dandelion Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 6, 2017

The Dandelion editors seek submissions on the theme of THE CONTEMPORARY for their forthcoming issue.

 

When will the contemporary end? When did it begin?

 

Contemporary cultural production and questions about the nature of contemporaneity itself have become dominant in recent scholarship but just what is ‘the contemporary’? What type of creative and scholarly work is being done under its aura? Should we apprehend the contemporary as a noun, offering definition and order to a discrete period in history; or is it rather as an adjective, traced with a particular structure of feeling, an interdisciplinary apprehension to what is happing Now and an anxiety towards what comes next?
