Uncommon Ground: Everyday Aesthetics and the Intensionality of the Public Realm
Call for Papers Date:
Since the publication of seminal works such as Henri Lefebvre’s Critique of Everyday Life and Michel DeCerteau’s The Practice of Everyday Life, the ingredient practices of the ‘everyday’ have emerged as a critical field of inquiry within a variety of disciplines. The resulting discursive montage has initiated the possibility to craft new understandings of the public realm as a place where the mediation between social structures and the subjective practices of those who occupy those places often results in responses to public space counter to narratives imposed or implied by existing power systems.
“Uncommon Ground: Everyday Aesthetics and the Intensionality of the Public Realm” invites scholars and artists whose work deals with the theatricality of power, corporealities of structural violence, and sensory regimes to contribute to a dialogue related to an aesthetics of the everyday as they apply to a broad artistic, political and cultural context. Papers, interviews, reviews, and artistic works that wish to be considered for publication should be emailed by December 5th 2008, to guest Editor Professor Danny Ortega, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Architecture Studies at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
