This is a final call for submissions for a collection of essays provisionally entitled, Contemporary Media Art in Ireland. This will be a volume of essays that provides a detailed account of born-digital art in an Irish context.
Please consider sharing with any relevant colleagues.
For the purposes of this collection, “Irish” is considered in the broadest and most inclusive sense, and suitable artists and/or works should simply demonstrate some significant connection to the island and/or relevant subject matters. “Contemporary media art” is an equally inclusive term, and includes any form of artistic practice that is rendered on a screen of any type: electronic literature, video games, film, interactive performances, or any other type of experimental screen fiction or multimodal production.
Artists and practitioners are welcome to discuss their own contributions, though all submissions need to be presented in a scholarly fashion using an appropriate critical framework.
Proposals for 6,000-word chapters should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 1st.
Proposals should be approximately 300-500 words in length, and give a clear indication of the proposed chapter’s content and significance. A biographical note should also be included.
