Sensate is a new online interdisciplinary journal publishing works of critical media practice. It is currently accepting submissions from academics, scientists and artists interested in working on collaborative projects which cross the boundaries between research and making.
Building on the groundswell of pioneering activities in the digital humanities, scholarly publishing, and innovative media practice, we believe in creating a space for redefining the terms in which such collaborations can be presented, articulating modes of working that are derived from artistic practice with revised standards for peer-reviewed academic production. It is with this goal in mind that Sensate aims at publishing innovative projects in the arts, humanities, and sciences, providing a forum for scholarly and artistic experiments not conducive to the printed page.
Call for Submissions and Reviews
Exploring new ways to archive, curate, and organize academic multimedia scholarship, Sensate invites submissions of scholarship and art not conducive to the printed page. We encourage submissions that creatively bridge research and media-based work, and aim beyond an illustrative relation between text and image towards both solid and innovative modes of scholarship and artistic practice.
The integration of form and content is crucial to our mission and thus rather than a list of guiding questions (which seek answers) we would like to offer a list of possible approaches that demonstrate efforts to unite form and content and to provoke inquiry through creative combinations of exposition and expression.
We are currently seeking work in any of the following categories/disciplines: artistic research, visual arts and artistic practice, history of technology and the media arts, visual anthropology and sensory ethnography, digital humanities, sound studies, media archeology, digital collections of audio and/or visual materials, digital cartography, performance and its documentation, imaging scientific research, and creative data visualization. We also welcome submissions that extend beyond these possibilities.
Sensate pieces may rework or expand traditional scholarship in a media rich context, or provide a space to remediate artistic projects in a new form. See our collection of published works at sensatejournal.com.
We are also seeking reviews for films, events, books, exhibitions, and performances. Please visit our blog for updates on calls for specific reviews.
Submissions are due by September 30th.
Please use the Chicago Manual of Style for all citations.
Please submit articles via our article submissions form, and reviews via our review submissions form.
