The Jefferson Scholars Foundation and the Jefferson Fellows at the University of Virginia recently hosted the second biennial Forum for Interdisciplinary Dialogue. Scholars from across the United States and the World presented their research at the two-day event.
On the heels of this successful conference, the Jefferson Scholars Foundation is proud to launch a new peer-reviewed academic journal entitled the Jefferson Journal of Science and Culture. The journal is a twice-annual publication intended to present high-quality manuscripts on interdisciplinary topics. Each journal will also have a theme. The theme for the first journal will correspond to the conference--"Icons and Iconoclasm."
We invite scholars in all fields to submit papers exploring the many roles, uses and interpretations of icons, as well as criticisms of their iconic status. Scholars are invited to interpret the terms "image," "icon," and "iconoclasm" in different ways.
Some topics may include:
• iconic ideas (scholarly theories, religious beliefs and practices, culture)
• mechanics of icons (construction, transmission, perception, and reception/destruction)
