Brújula Vol. 6
Art and Encounters

Brújula's sixth issue, devoted to the construction of the imaginary in
artistic discourses in Latin America, seeks to encourage a dialogue between
diverse manifestations of aesthetic thought and creation. Essays might
explore analytical, historical and/or interpretive approaches. Proposals
with an interdisciplinary focus in literature, dance, music, visual arts,
theater, cinema, architecture, new technologies, etc., are welcome; we are
interested in works that respond to contemporary production, as well as
those that encompass other historical periods. Potential topics for
investigation include:

- Intentionality(ies): author, work, audience
- Objectivities and subjectivities in the arts
- Spaces and times: locality, globalization and the past, present and future
- Identity construction
- Reception studies
- Intersections of artistic discourses
- The "new" arts: technology and media
- Collectivity, collaboration and community in artistic creation
- Creative processes and the mind
- Politics, the State and art
