Call for Submissions | Beyond Survival: Public Funding for the Arts and Humanities – Art Journal Open

Three decades into the long culture wars, how are artists, scholars, and cultural organizations navigating shifting political, community, and financial tides? Where have we encountered friction or congruence between federal priorities and our work at state, local, and community levels? Has our work changed – in structure, presentation, or substance – in response to these priorities? Despite threats of elimination earlier in the year, federal funding for the arts and humanities has been preserved—at least for now. While rightly celebrating this collective accomplishment, we must also acknowledge that ideological pressures on US cultural policy are performed as much through selective…

Call for Abstracts: European Drama and Performance Studies Journal

In The Emancipated Spectator, Jacques Rancière questions the relationship of the viewer and the work (theatre, art, film, etc.). He asks what does it mean if the viewer is seen as passive and the performer as active. He is concerned with the political implications of relegating the viewer’s role to that of observer. As Guy Debord has pointed out this leads to the creation of one-way transmissions, the spectacle. Image-based media has tended to bring forward various forms of empathy in the viewer, be it identifying with a hero or a call to action. Since the Agitprop trains of the…

Mestizo Tech link to web edition: http://median.newmediacaucus.org/mestizo-technology-art-design-and-technoscience-in-latin-america/ Mestizo Tech link to LULU edition: http://www.lulu.com/shop/new-media-caucus/mestizo-technology-art-design-and-technoscience-in-latin-america/paperback/product-22924280.html Latin America is a diverse geographical and cultural region populated by a wealth of extremely productive new media specialists with significant local and global exposure. Yet, scarce are academic English language anthologies composed of theoretical writings that survey the status of art, technology and design practices in and by that constituency. With this in mind, Media-N’s mission has been to support a provocative theme that might begin to fill the gap. “Mestizo Technology: Art, Design, and Technoscience in Latin America” is the title proposed by Guest…
