Mosaic invites submissions for a special issue on "Sculpture".
Call for Papers Date:
Mosaic, a journal for the interdisciplinary study of literature invites submissions for a special issue on "Sculpture". Material must be received by January 15, 2009.
According to Hegel, since it transforms mere stone or wood into the human figure, sculpture constitutes the proper centre of classical art, and is at best complemented by poetry. What has happened that enables Arthur Danto to suggest that sculpture is postmodernism's privileged form? Mosaic invites submissions that relate contemporary sculpture to literature and literary-critical theory, considering such topics as: sculpturality, citationality, movement, body, surface, hybridity, animality, voice, writing, duration, memory, narrative, texture, history, architecture, colour, clothing, life, light, nature, mourning, spectacle, translation and violence.
We welcome submissions that conform to our mandate. Please visit our website for a full description of our submission guidelines. http://www.umanitoba.ca/mosaic
