"Media, Materiality and Emergency" (MAST: Journal of Media Art, Study, and Theory; submissions due Jun 30)

Guest editor: Dr. Timothy Barker (University of Glasgow)

In what ways do questions of materiality matter in a time of crisis? What does it mean to explore the matter of things at a time when we are threatened with the annihilation of that matter, its disappearance, or its disintegration?

The second issue of NeMLA's new journal MAST seeks to answer and further explore these questions through essays from arts practitioners and theorists.

Please email submissions and questions to editors@mast-nemla.org

"Total Screen: Why Jean Baudrillard, Once Again?" (MAST: Journal of Media Art, Study, and Theory; submissions due Sept 15)

Guest editor: Katharina Niemeyer (University of Québec in Montréal) and Magali Uhl (University of Québec in Montréal)

What place does or could Jean Baudrillard occupy in media studies, visual studies, and art theory today? How does his work—as both a philosopher and a vernacular photographer—continue to influence visual artists and other forms of media art? How can we confront his radical views with feminist, intersectional, queer, postcolonial, and other critical approaches? This special issue of MAST seeks to answer and further explore these questions through proposals from arts practitioners and theorists. 

Please email submissions and questions to specialissue@mast-nemla.org.
