>Call for Papers - Critical Matrix
>
>Critical Matrix, an interdisciplinary journal of gender and culture, is
>seeking submissions from all disciplines for an issue devoted to questions
>of space and place. Possible topics might include but are in no way
>limited to:
>
>* Urban politics, and transformations therein which are tied to and in turn
>driven by fluctuations in gender. dynamics and the visible manifestation of
>roles, regulations, power structures.
>* Architectural and artistic practices.
>*Public, private, domestic and intimate realms.
>* Literature and film.
>* Practices and conditions which are simultaneously local and discrete in
>their impact and manifestation yet potentially transnational in their
>comprehensibility and appeal.
>* Alternative spaces and practices within and against the ongoing incursion
>of technological media and digital culture into everyday life.
>
>       In the last forty years, various artistic, academic, critical and
>cultural practices have interrogated the production and coding of space as
>it impacts contemporary identities and experiences. Recent assessments of
>contemporary culture are suspicious that this interrogation has lost much
>of its critical purchase and that we are now faced with a renewed wave of
>cultural relativism. That is to say that the forms and means of disparate
>practices become potentially transparent to the unreflexive presentation
>of their content drawn from around the globe, be it race, class, gender,
>or place. Such practices run the risk of being merely topical and
>expressive. To minimize the content of such work reflects on the one hand
>a frequently perceived need for attention to larger historical and global
>political questions. However, if rendered too abstract, this approach has
>significant and damaging limitations.  To take a recent example, this
>tendency allowed apologists of the war on Afghanistan to resolve and
>thereby dismiss the oppression of Afghan women. On the other hand, the
>charge of relativism reveals the problematic advance of globalization in
>actuality and under its mythical cover as a foregone conclusion. Inside of
>this condition, the proliferation of digital technologies and media
>suggest a further need for critical attention to questions of gender and
>space as the processes and rituals that enliven and redefine both are
>subsumed within virtual spacetime. Indeed, even work that seeks to resist
>the digital condition is already reflective of it, as artists and critics
>move beyond melancholic and nostalgic models to suggest that in
>literature, film, and the plastic arts, what counts now may be less the
>possibility for each of these mediums to generate distinct forms of
>experience, but that they uniformly manifest a historical condition of
>belatedness in which the past lingers on to accentuate, but also to temper
>new and critically effective works of art at a time when everything, and
>more of it, is newer than ever. However, the audience and historical
>subjectivity produced by such works remains only broadly articulated
>(however vestiges of place, as in certain installations by Mona Hatoum,
>may partially counter and clarify this condition, and perhaps overturn its
>logic of diminished returns, and contest, also, the potential
>arbitrariness of installation art as a genre).  And within this context
>there still exists for architectural and artistic practices a frequent
>antinomy between deterritorialized spaces in which the ephemeral grain of
>lived historical experience may still obtain, and more institutional
>spaces that can still be utilized and resisted to produce concrete forms
>of historical awareness. Questions of gender matter in such instances as
>they can be used to bridge this and other levels of separation.
>
>Submissions need not be based in current topics.   Historical work, or
>simply work on objects, texts, and practices more remote from the
>present will also speak to these concerns, perhaps preserving them in an
>archival gesture as they seem, increasingly, to be transformed and to
>disappear.
>
>Please refer to this site for submission guidelines:
>http://www.princeton.edu/~prowom/CM/call.html.
>(Due to operating constraints, Critical Matrix is unable to offer
>reviews of manuscripts not selected for publication.)

>Deadline: October 1, 2002
