Call for submissions Streetnotes : “Walking in the Digital City”

Be the first to favourite this.

Dr Claudia Brazzale and Blake Morris are editing a special issue of Streetnotes, a peer-reviewed biannual journal for the interdisciplinary study of the city, its lifeways and social relations, with a special concern for the cultural and aesthetic forms that arise through its traffic.

A new generation of artists working in and across disciplines – dance/choreography, performance, visual art, music, and what
Phil Smith refers to as “Walking’s New Movement” – are using digital
tools, such as blogs, listservs, mobile applications, and augmented
reality, to encourage different ways of walking through the city. 

The editors are looking for submissions focused on Walking in the Digital City, including creative responses, artist’s pages, walking scores, practice-based research, as well as traditional scholarly articles, that address the relationship between walking and digital tools. 

The editors are interested in walking as both subject and method, and encourage submissions that take a practice-based approach. They look for contributions that offer models for practice, in addition to any critique of, the intersection of digital technology and urban walking practices.

Papers may cover a wide array of approaches and creative inquiries to this topic.

The submission deadline is 16 January 2020. Full CFP here.

Proposem fer una performance participativa caminant amb les peces d’avellaner pels volts del congres. Inicialment faran ballar les Muses, les 4 ballarines Ona Mestre, Zoe Balasch, Joana Sardà i Sandra Fradera. Després les peces passaran de cos a cos per sentir la relació de les branques amb la pell i cos, sentir els moviments i sensacions que provoquen, i obrir-nos a la màgia del que pot succeir al posar-nos en contacte amb elles.
