CFP: Sequitur Issue 3, 1, Self + Portrait

  • Dates: 18 Aug – 09 Sep, 2016
  • Location: United States
  • Email: sequitur@bu.edu
SEQUITUR, the Boston University Department of History of Art & Architecture graduate student journal, invites current graduate students in art history, architecture, fine arts, and related fields to submit content for the Fall 2016 issue titled Self + Portrait. This issue explores the ways in which art objects and artistic endeavors influence perceptions of the self—and vice versa. While art and identity may seem inseparable, we seek submissions that highlight the power and importance of the mutually constitutive relationship between the two. Possible subjects include, but are not limited to, the following: reflections of the self in the built environment such as museums, funerary architecture, and domestic spaces; manifestations of self through art objects, collections, display, commissions and patronage; expressions of identity across media platforms; explorations, interrogations, or critiques of traditional portraiture; artistic journeys of self-discovery; identity politics. We encourage submissions that take advantage of the online format of the journal. We invite full submissions for the following pieces: Featured essays (1000 words) Essays must be submitted in full by the deadline below to be considered for publication. Content is open and at the discretion of the author, but should present original material that is suitable to the stipulated word limit. Please adhere to the formatting guidelines available here. Visual Essays An opportunity for M.Arch. or M.F.A. students to showcase a selection of original work. The work must be reproducible in a digital format. Submissions should include jpegs of up to ten works, and must be prefaced by an introduction or artist’s statement of 250 words or less. All images must be captioned and should be at least 500 DPI. We invite proposals (200 words max) for the following pieces (Note: Reviews of any type are not required to adhere to the issue’s theme): Exhibition reviews (500 words) Exhibitions currently on display or very recently closed are especially sought. Book or exhibition catalogue reviews (500 words) Reviews of recently published books and catalogues are especially sought. Interviews (750 words) Preference may be given to those who can provide audio or video recordings of the interview. Field reports/Research spotlights (500 words) This is an opportunity for students conducting research to summarize and share their findings and experiences in a more casual format than a formal paper. All submissions and proposals are due September 9. Please direct all materials to sequitur@bu.edu Text must be in the form of a Word document, and images should be sent as jpeg files. Please include “Sequitur Fall 2016” and type of submission/proposal in the subject line, and your name, institution and program, year in program, and contact information in the body of the email. Authors will be notified of the acceptance of their submission or proposal no later than September 16 for December 2 publication.
