Call for Projects:
Fungiculture is a psychedelic journal for cultural studies; a space for the experimental spread and cultivation of ideas and practices.
Our second issue will explore rhythms. We welcome projects that examine, both in form and content, the cadences at work in time, sleep, love, mathematics, sense, sex, memory, war, and other realms.
We are interested in the way rhythms act between instants as generative forces, cutting across temporalities and subjectivities. How does rhythm structure and deconstruct experience and materials?
Submissions may engage with, but are not limited to, discourses surrounding media studies, radical politics, aesthetics, ethics, philosophy, queer and affect theory. We welcome experimental, collaborative and traditional academic writing.
The selected projects will be published on the Fungiculture online platform and distributed as a PDF.
We welcome paper and project proposals of all varieties. Mixed-media and non-textual projects are encouraged, but we will primarily publish textual works, which can be both traditional academic papers and experimental writing pieces. SeeIssue #1 for examples. Published text pieces will be expected to be around 5,000 words in length.
To submit, please send an abstract (not exceeding 500 words) to email@example.com by June 14th 2015. Please include relevant images and sound samples, if applicable, and the authors’ CVs or a description of relevant previous experience. Keep in mind that abstracts must explain not just the topic of interest but also the form and technical requirements of your proposed project.
