We have been promising you fine folk some news for a while now. It is finally here!
We are very very happy to launch the call out for our upcoming journal project.
THE CRITICAL ANIMALS JOURNAL 2013
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Over the past ten years, the Critical Animals Creative Research Symposium has seen its dynamic community of thinkers and practitioners evolve and transform. To mark this milestone in 2013, we will be producing the inaugural edition of a Critical Animals Journal (title to be confirmed). This edition will reflect upon the extraordinary contributions and relationships that have emerged through this annual symposium since its inception in 2003. We will be looking for contributions from past and present participants in Critical Animals, encouraging submissions that exploit creative, analytical, written and visual formats. You may have a personal anecdote you wish to share, a particular concept or problem you want to examine, or a past contribution made to Critical Animals that you’d like to resubmit. You may even want to create and document a new work or write a love poem dedicated to Critical Animals. Whatever your inclination, we’d love to hear about it. Our target audience are people like you; so don’t be shy to express yourself in a scholarly, experimental or comical style.
To put things in perspective, 10 human years is equivalent to 28 pony years, 50 goat years, 53 dog years and 79 bearded-dragon years. Any way you look at it, this is enough time to start reflecting upon the status of critical thought and practice today. We’d like to know: What do you think it means to think or act critically? Has your understanding of this term changed over the past ten years? Can you envisage what challenges or opportunities the next ten years might pose for criticality? How has/does Critical Animals engage with criticality?
The deadline for contributor proposals is the 31 May. Please submit approx 100 – 200 words describing your proposed article/work for the Critical Animals Journal.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact Denise at firstname.lastname@example.org .
