int j. of screendance – open call for submissions volume 6

Submission Deadline: 31 July 2015

This is an open call for submissions to Volume 6 of the International Journal of Screendance: http://screendancejournal.org/.

We welcome contributions and scholarship that test, provoke and challenge screendance work and practices, debates, and theoretical positions. How might the act of writing about and towards this cross-disciplinary form help scholars and artists subvert the nature, forms, frames, and value of screendance? Recent issues have focused on the relationship of theory and practice in screendance, and community and collaboration. For volume 6, we welcome contributions on any topic relevant to screendance, including intersections with the fields of dance, performance, visual art, cinema and media arts, and the way their practices, technologies, theories, and philosophies assist in contextualizing contemporary work for screen. We also invite essays related to dance in popular media such as television, popular film, and internet platforms.

We invite contributions related to all aspects of screendance production, curation, reception, history, and analysis in the forms of scholarly research, interviews, reviews, provocations and viewpoints, visual essays, as well as work by emerging scholars. For the purposes of review, please indicate which of the above categories best characterizes your contribution. All submissions should be uploaded by authors to IJSD’s Open Journal System at screendancejournal.org.

Scholarly papers are peer-reviewed in a double-blind process, and should be 3500–6000 words. All other contributions will be reviewed by the editorial board.
