Entry Deadline: Monday, November 2nd 2015 at 11:59 pm
The VASA Journal on Images and Culture is interested in proposals that address the potential and impact of the e-book – specifically photography and media e-books.
Proposals may address issues related to the disappearance of the object, challenges, history and possibilities related to the evolution of the e-book. VJIC is interested in manuscripts, examples, video talks, and downloadables that make an argument or take a position on the impact of e-books on aesthetics, forms of production and dissemination, and the shifting paradigm of control, bypassing the usual avenues of publication and dissemination.
Accepted proposals will be published in the VASA Journal on Images and Culture. VASA/VJIC currently has over 5,000 international members who will have the opportunity to view/read your published work.
