POLIS JOURNAL – ISSUE 22
CALL FOR PAPERS
ART AND CULTURE IN A TRANSFORMATIVE WORLD
POLIS, the academic journal of the Faculty of Humanities, Education and Liberal Arts at EUT, is calling for papers on Art and Culture in a transformative world for its forthcoming issue. Volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous are at the top of list of the adjectives to describe the challenges and demands we are facing nowadays. While we are still dealing with the consequences of a world pandemic after COVID19, other dynamics have taken place and leading to further insecurity and lack of stability. Amidst this crisis, it is of special relevance to reflect on these consequences from different perspectives trying to consider the developments, growth or reductions of arts and culture. The aim is to figure out how cultural values and practices are changing in terms of production, dissemination and reception among creators and audiences.
The current issue shall open a discussion on the applications of arts and cultural initiatives in various contexts and trying to relate with technological settings, communication practices and greater issues of politics and society. In addition, arts have started to become integral parts of school curricula and it might be of special interest to analyze its effects on individual growth and success as well as evaluate its role and impact on the educational system.
Moreover, further research and analysis is needed on a range of aspects related to new forms of art, to the critical approaches towards the media and entertainment industry, to material and non- material art heritage, as well as to art and cultural institutions per se.
Suggested topics for contribution, but not limited to, are as follows:
- The transformation of traditional art, culture and institutions: museums, concerts, street art
- Technologies in modern Art
- Advertisement as a kind of Art
- Pop culture and Politics
- Feminism effects on Art in general
- Activism as a platform for modern Art
- Culture as a political instrument
- Entertainment industry as a manifestation of art.
- Nationalism and Culture
- Art as an agent of memory
- Social media forms of arts: Memes, podcast and the tyranny of reels
- Gender roles and their influence in art
- Pop culture and politics
- Nationalism and culture
- The significance of Art education.
- Teaching art and new school curricula
- Poetry and aesthetics in times of uncertainty
