This is a call for papers for the 4th Issue of M/C/T a journal/e-zine
concerned with Media, Culture and Technology. For this issue, we have the
following special theme:

The Fake Issue

What's real? What's true? These may seem like outdated questions in these
hyper wired times of ours. Indeed, as Jean Baudrillard pointed out years
ago, the question of authenticity no longer matters in the same way, now
that we are fully immersed in an environment of virtual simulation. The
quest for authenticity is not only pointless but dissatisfying as well.

Priya Vigneswaran

Antithesis is an interdisciplinary journal of critical theory and creative
cultural production. It is Australia's longest standing postgraduate
journal and is published by University of Melbourne, the leading research
institution

Volume 11, 'SEX 2000' seeks to explore the various terrains through which
'sex' might remain or become both intelligible and possible. This project
can be realised through a consideration of libidinal investments across
visual and discursive practices, corporeal enactments and virtual
identifications. Accordingly, these provisional locations will imply a
constitutive and reflexive negativity or absence, in the form of
banalities, repulsions and failures.
