FORUM Call for Papers, Issue 27 (2018): The Gaze
Issue 27 of FORUM seeks contributions from a wide range of disciplines concerning the gaze, recognition, and identification.

How does the presence of the gaze affect the ownership of a medium? How is the gaze redirected in subversive art? Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

Digital humanities and contemporary audiences
The #metoo movement and the male gaze
