Submission has been extended to October 12, 2007 for antiTHESIS journal
2008. Further, whilst this remains a themed edition we are open to creative
interpretation. Original details below:

> CFP: 'Piracy' - antiTHESIS Journal, Volume 18 (2008).
> "In civilizations without boats, dreams dry up, espionage takes the
> place of adventure, and the police take the place of pirates."
> -Foucault
> antiTHESIS, one of Australia's longest running postgraduate
> interdisciplinary journals, now invites creative, scholarly and visual
> contributions for Volume 18, 'Piracy.' Despite its negative
> representation in official histories, piracy presents a site of
> contestation and alterity within an increasingly rationalised and
> globalised modernity. Piracy brings the concepts of ownership and
> territory into question; digital piracy disrupts the opposition
> between work and play, producer and consumer (Kline, 2003). As such,
> piracy as concept and as practice offers a way to re-think issues
> within and between disciplines. We seek papers that explore the idea
> of piracy in relation to the following themes:
> --piracy and new media
> --piracy and the state
> --cultural representation of pirates
> --copyright & intellectual property
> --plagiarism, literary appropriation and allusion
> --musical piracy
> --terrorism and piracy
> --immigration, liminality and piracy
> --maps, geography and exploration
> --treasure and trade
> --piracy, gender and sexuality
> --and other related creative submissions
> Creative and scholarly papers must be of no more than 6,000 words in
> length with academic citations conforming to the 15th edition of the
> Chicago Manual of Style. All submissions must consist of a Microsoft
> Word or Open Office document attached to an email. Visual pieces,
> including original cover art designed for a 150mm x 210mm space, are
> also welcome. Preliminary submissions may be made via e-mail and must
> include a 72 or 75 i JPEG image, the title of the work, and the
> artist's contact information. Upon selection, we will require a
> print-quality image on CD or PC formatted disk and a signed letter or
> release form giving permission for its use by antiTHESIS.
