Whose Reality? Representing and Represented Identities in Arts and Politics
Under the current political climate, reality is a territory in constant epistemological dispute. The notion itself is frequently addressed throughout different disciplines, such a Literature, Cinema, as well as Physics and Cybernetics, revealing a questioning of power and its representations. Who determines what is real? How do we, s scholars, engage with reality(ies) through our work? How does Academia manage this category of knowledge?
We welcome academic contributions in English, French or Spanish in the fields of Romance Studies including literary studies, cultural studies, visual arts, film and media studies, gender studies, and linguistics. Topics of interest include:
Identities, Representation(s), and Mass Media / (Neo) Colonialism and the Question of the Self / Global Communication Systems / Reality and Intersectionality
Documentary, Archives, and Memory / Perspective and Reality / Virtual Reality and Identity / Trauma and Reality / National Identities and Historical Discourse
Publication decisions are based solely on the quality of the submissions and may be accepted with or without revisions.
Essays that have been published elsewhere will not be considered.
The deadline for submissions is January 11th, 2019.
Send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
