NUART JOURNAL CALL FOR PAPERS
ISSUE III: MEMORY AND THE CITY
DEADLINE JUNE 20 2019
Following the successful international launch of Issue I and II of Nuart Journal, we are now calling for submissions for Issue III.
In Issue II of Nuart Journal, Jeff Ferrell’s visual essay employed discarded photographs to reanimate “a secret archive of city life… a dislocated urban history of visible ghosts and invisible intentions, a disorienting dérive through other lives, other times, and other places… another city within the city… pieced together from image, loss, memory, and imagination.”
Issue III seeks to build upon these noticings to focus on the evocative intersection of memory and the city, and the role of urban art cultures and the art of the streets in unravelling and critically reworking the city’s collective memories. We welcome traditional academic papers and more experimental visual submissions which critically address this theme.
We are particularly interested in critical examinations of nostalgia, cultural recycling, melancholic aesthetics and hauntology; of the depoliticised reworking of vernacular practices within new urbanism’s various initiatives; and of historical accounts that lament the loss of a once ‘authentic’ art of the streets.
Nuart Journal accepts submissions from a broad range of authors including cultural heritage workers, historians, critics, cultural and human geographers, political theorists, anthropologists, ethnographers, sociologists, psychologists, criminologists, curators, artists, writers, taggers, anarchists, and out and out vandals.
