CfP Volume 2, Issue 2: Imaginaries of the Future

*Extended Manuscript Deadline: April 9 2017*

Attention future scholars! The Call for Papers for Volume 2 Issue 2 is open, and the theme is “Imaginaries of the Future,” downloadable here. In order to encourage submissions from all humanities disciplines, the theme of the issue has been left broad, and students should feel confident to interpret it imaginatively. As inspiration, we offer the following subjects as examples of how the theme ‘Imaginaries of the Future’ can be made relevant to different fields:

  • Mass-culture: contemporary changes in technology, thought, discourse, power structure, approach to the concept of change and the type of responsibility we feel towards the future
  • Temporality: problematizing the linear temporal relationship between past, present and future
    The digital revolution: new media and media technology, gamification, globalization, and the changing social and digital interface
  • Identity politics: post-colonialism, diversifying views on gender, ethnicity, nationality, religion, human rights and minority identities
  • Post-humanism: cyborg hybridization, artificial intelligence, re-conceptualizing the definition of human beings, or of being-human
  • Material economics: growth vs. de-growth, sustainability, sharing economy, approaches to ecology and climate-change, shifts in governmental and economical practices and/or policies
  • Art and history: changing modes of representation, experience, narrative structures in various forms, changes in our experience of time and visions of the future
  • Spatiality: design of urban spaces, approaches to natural and artificial environment

The issue follows the theme of 2017’s 3rd Humanities Student Conference and this year’s Humanities Lecture Series, and we welcome both articles based upon papers delivered at this year’s conference, and original submissions from RMA humanities students, as well as reviews of books related to the theme ‘Imaginaries of the Future’. We warmly invite speakers of the conference to submit to Junctions, however, we strongly welcome other students to submit to Junctions.
