CALL FOR NOT PAPERS
(Our submission period has closed)
We are very excited to present a Call for Not Papers
In light of our current global crisis, we will be remiss if we didn’t address our current relation to spatial-temporality. Our relationship with worlding and the sense of being situated in our cultural ecology has suddenly shifted towards cyber sociality. We have been jettison toward attempting to create spaces of care, communication, and closeness while we are distancing ourselves for survival. With these nuanced concerns in mind about how we perform our new reality of everydayness, we present a call for not papers. Our call for not papers is not interested in the singular piece of evidence of academic rigor that relies on its author. We would like contributions to be a perspective or fragments of how researchers create modes of caring, survival, and or rest in conversation with their research topic. Our call is about blurring the lines between authorship, the body, the identity, and what is considered the practice of disseminating research. We are looking for contributors that entrust their research to the space of the In-Between. A piece contributing to the assemblage of a space of kinship, slowness, and attention. The In-Between where identities and the illusion of individuality dissolve into collaborative modalities of care.
We invite humans to contribute an image, text, prose, sound, and video to assemble the In-Between. The contribution must be related to your research interest, and come from a personal site of rest and recovery generated by embodied knowledge. The contributions can operate as a praxis, questions, a textual labyrinth of release, or any other fitting fragment created in response to attempting wholeness. These offers of research well-being ephemera will be presented without being attached to the identity of the contributor. All text contributions will be read by another identity. Images, sound, and video will be presented without the contributor’s name. Each contribution will be limited to 5 minutes.
Please note this event will happen via a digital platform and all contributions will be presented by a fellow contributor. Please submit a title and abstract of the contribution of 150 words or less, a brief description of your research, and if applicable institutional affiliation. Please put your name and the medium(image, sound, and video, text, other) in the subject line. All submissions must be sent by May 8th to email@example.com.
If you have any questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to the attention of Assemblers.
We are looking forward to your beautiful contributions!!!!
