Dear Performance & New Technologies members,
Thank you for your contributions to TaPRA 2019, which resulted in a stimulating event.
As discussed during the conference in Exeter, we would like to invite those of you who feel that have presented strong papers which can be turned into excellent articles or alternative documents (such as practice-as-research reports or interviews) to submit your work to the International Journal of Performance Arts & Digital Media (IJPADM), which will publish this coming year an Affiliated Issue on Inclusive Intermedialities with the Performance & New Technologies working group.
The issue will look back at Performance and New Technologies presentations and discussions from the last two TaPRA conferences (2018 and 2019), including the 2019 interim event at University of South Wales and will focus on the theme of the 2019 call, which was ‘Inclusive Intermedialities’. We are interested in research exploring and reflecting on inclusion, access and new modes of engagement in contemporary intermedial practices. This may include consideration of:
· Embedding access and inclusion through new technologies
· The ethics of technologically induced empathies
· The disjunctures and discomforts enacted in the intersections of human and technological processes
· The politics of the global and the local in contemporary postdigital practices.
· Expanded scenographies in new intermedial practices
· Virtuality and actuality in new intermedial performance
· Approaches to conceptualising creative labour in practices which engage with new technologies, such as the ‘outsourcing’ of creative labour to non-human agents
· New technologies in performance in the aftermath of the ‘digital revolution’
· Bugs and glitches as aesthetics of disruption and inclusion
The deadline for submitting your articles and documents to the journal is 16th December 2019.
Please submit your articles online, through the journal’s website: https://www.tandfonline.com/toc/rpdm20/current
Before you submit your work, please make sure that it follows the journal’s style guidelines as published on the website. A typical paper for this journal should be between 6000 and 8000 words, inclusive of tables, references, figure captions, footnotes, endnotes. Alternative documents can be shorter in length.
This is going to be a quick turnaround, with successful articles appearing online and in print in May 2020.
The International Journal of Performance Arts & Digital Media is a double blind peer-review journal published by Taylor & Francis (Routledge).
