Call for Papers — Open Issue 14.3

Imaginations Journal invites submissions for issue 14 number 3, to be published in December 2023. We are interested in articles that discuss the social and political inheritances of the image across periods (e.g. decades, centuries, moments, etc.) and geographies (e.g. continents, nations, regions, etc.) as well as the aesthetic considerations of image producers in light of emergent technologies. General submissions may include the following: new technologies, interactions between text and image, text as image, images and the self, dynamic and static images, omnipresence of screens (big and small), thinkers of the image, images across concerns, disciplines, and methodologies (e.g., visuality, medicine, science, politics, gender, sexuality, race, digital humanities, environmental humanities, forms of being and knowledge, etc.). See the most recent open issue 10.2 for an example: Open Issue 10.2.

Types of Submission

At Imaginations Journal, we invite creative pieces as well as traditional academic articles (9,000 words max.). We can and do publish innovative multimodal works (e.g. video essays, photo essays, etc.) as well as original art works. We will also accommodate publications in any language, and we will work with authors in order to ensure meaningful translation of their work into English.


The following guidelines are meant to help authors understand how to submit a clean manuscript for a timely and smooth production process.
