Call For Papers

KAPSULA Magazine | Current Call for Submissions | ANIMALITY

KAPSULA asks writers to consider what it means to be animal, and how the question of the animal resonates in visual art, new media and installation, film, literature, or other creative genres. Writers may choose to address the following topics:

Categories of the human and nonhuman
Animality as a complement to technicity/technology
Bio-art and the aestheticized politics of microscopic life forms
Forms of cross-species communication
The significance of animality to anti- or non-Cartesian philosophies
Complicating the logic of human exceptionalism
Feminist, queer, and post-colonial approaches to the animal
New materialism as critical method
Biological cybernetics and responsive environments
Finding subjectivity through animal and Other

With the ongoing development of posthuman discourse, a renewed interest in animality has emerged of conversations about the state of the human in a technologically saturated world, where flesh-and-blood can only take you so far. Writers responding to this call are encouraged to think critically about the significance of the animal, not only as an inspiration, a symbol, or a subject, but also as a fluid concept that begs re-definition in our current, battery-fueled moment.

Submit abstracts, finished texts and project proposals by e-mail to by midnight on March 4th, 2016.
