Philosophy of Photography Call for Papers
Philosophy of Photography is a new peer-reviewed journal devoted to the scholarly understanding of photography. It is not committed to any one notion of photography nor, indeed, to any particular philosophical approach. The purpose of the journal is to provide a forum for debating theoretical issues arising from the historical, political, cultural and scientific matrix of ideas, practices and techniques that constitute photography as a multifaceted form. In a contemporary context remarkable for its diversity and rate of change, the conjunction of the terms ‘philosophy’ and ‘photography’ in the journal’s title is intended to act as a provocation to serious reflection on the ways in which existing and emergent photographic discourses might engage with and inform each other.
Issue 1 was launched at the Photographers Gallery in London on March 31st and is now on sale in the gallery’s bookshop and online through Intellect, the publisher’s website. You can also find more information and download a free pdf preview copy of issue 1.1.from the Intellect website: http://www.intellectbooks.co.uk/journals/view-Journal,id=186/
The editors welcome inquiries and submissions from researchers and practitioners from a broad range of disciplines, who seek to explore any aspect of photography from a theoretical standpoint. The journal publishes articles, reviews, conference reports, occasional symposia on key topics and critical analyses of technical developments. The editors will also consider proposals for contributions in the form of photographic works. Prospective guest editors with ideas for themed issues are invited to approach the editors with their proposal. Prospective book, exhibition and conference reviewers should approach the reviews editor, Andrew Fisher, directly.
We are interested in receiving new submissions for publication in issues 1.2 (October 2010) and 2.1 (February 2011).
The deadline for submissions for publication in Philosophy of Photography 1.2 is July 31, 2010.
The deadline for submissions for publication in Philosophy of Photography 2.1 is October 31, 2010.
