POIESIS: A Journal of the Arts & Communication Volume 12, 2010: Artwork submissions
Deadline: February 25, 2010
POIESIS is an international periodical which annually publishes research from the fields of Expressive Arts and Media and Communication. We are currently accepting submissions for artwork to include in the journal.
This year's theme for the 12th annual issue: POIETICS OF ALTERITY: Opening to the Other in the Arts, Media and the Arts Therapies.
How can we represent the Other? How can the Other represent us? In this issue of the journal, we will be looking at ways in which we may open to the Other in the arts, media and the arts therapies. Is art a vehicle for the expression of the self or does it necessarily imply transcendence toward otherness? What, if anything, is a self and how does it reach out to the Other, both the other person and the otherness of itself? Can poiesis be a basis for ethical practice or is there, as Kierkegaard thought, an insuperable gap between the aesthetic and the ethical?
We encourage contributors to open to otherness to bring in “All things counter, original, spare, strange…” (Hopkins), going beyond the boundaries of the proper, of their own intellectual property, and venturing onto foreign ground. Without pretending to identify with the Other, we may yet find ways to recognize him or her, in Baudelaire’s words, as the Hypocrite lecteur, -mon semblable, -mon frere, together with whom we can better combat that “delicate monster” of Ennui.
