POIESIS: A Journal of the Arts & Communication Volume 13, 2011: Artwork submissions
Deadline: February 24, 2011
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 13th annual issue: THE HEAD OF ORPHEUS: Voice, Song and the Poetics of Resistance and Transformation
Legend tells us that after the Thracian women tore the body of Orpheus into pieces, they threw his head into the Hebrus river. As it floated downstream, he kept on singing. In more recent times, Victor Jara sang "Venceremos" a cappella when his fingers were broken by Pinochet's soldiers and he could no longer play the guitar.
Can voice and song be vehicles for resistance and transformation?
What is there in the human voice that is capable of transcending ordinary speech and creating new worlds?
For this special issue of POIESIS, we invite submissions which explore the potential of the voice for transformation and resistance. Contributions may also address the question of whether new media change our relationship to the voice. Does the therapeutic emphasis on bodily expression run aground on what Derrida called the "metaphysics of presence"? Can voice and speech mediated through cyberspace introduce new possibilities for communication or is there necessarily something lost in transmission?
If circumstances permit, spoken word, sound and musical contributions will be included in the issue in audio format. Please contact us for submission guidelines.
