M/C: A Journal of Media and Culture Call for Papers for 'walking' issue

Why do we walk? Walking traverses boundaries of the physical, political, artistic, narrated, literary, and psychological, and can be deployed as a complex practice in an increasingly digitised world. In this issue, we examine the contemporary practices and representations of walking. We encourage work with an interest in the hybrid, the interdisciplinary, the intersectional; that looks to fields as diverse as feminist studies, life writing, nature writing, anthropology and fictocriticism.

We think walking can be an act, a response, a methodology, a transgression. Areas of investigation may include, but are not limited to:

ext: writing extinction

Imagine thinking about extinction, starting from ext and extending, textually and extra-textually, and coming back to the raw, more-or-other-than-death thought, perhaps unthinkable, of extinction.

ext would suggest the perhaps for now truncated name of something needing thinking, a thought without a thinker, that would be more than a thought—extinction, textuality, extravagant thinking of the effects of a vanishing without trace, that we can’t face.
