Call for Contributions
Re-Visions aims to critically analyze discourses in which subject-matters and themes enter prospective fields of research and grow in complexity, mutate and change in conceptual, theoretical and cultural frameworks. We invite papers considering concepts such as seeing (what others can't), the gaze, vision(s), the visual, revising, re-applying, re-interrogating and all other possible interpretations of the title Re-visions in relation to contributors' own research. Subjects might include but are not limited to:
• How ideas and meanings re-appear or are re-shaped according to chronological and cultural circumstances
• How concepts are politicized when revised
• How vision regenerates past discourses
• quotation
• remembering
• recycling ideas
• imitation
• migration
• looking (again)

The Re-Visions editors believe the theme of revising, re-visioning and re-questioning of various concepts from any period in art and design research is a good starting point for our postgraduate e-journal. We would, therefore, like to encourage both theoretical and practice-based contributions from postgraduate students at universities in the United Kingdom and internationally. Submissions can concern theory or practice, or both. We welcome interdisciplinary and cross-cultural investigations of historical, polemical or topical subjects.
We also invite reviews of exhibitions and written publications and any form of visual submissions, for which we have specifically dedicated gallery sections.

For notes on required format of submissions, see our notes to contributors. All papers are subjected to a double-blind system of peer review.
Please send papers to:
Submissions due: 17th of September 2010
