Sensate is an online, media-based journal for the creation, presentation, and scholarly critique of innovative creative projects in the arts, humanities, sciences, and media. Driven by the conviction that the making of creative projects is an inherent part of academic or scholarly work, we aim to expand conversations and collaborative communities among scholars, film/videomakers, sound artists, and others. Sensate is a collaborative and interdisciplinary initiative involving Harvard and MIT graduate students and faculty as well as independent artists and scholars from various universities, centers and departments, with the intent to integrate new modes of media-based scholarship and critical media practice into the cognitive life of the academy and beyond.
Sensate is currently accepting submissions for reviews on a range of material or sensory experiences, including but not limited to audio and/or visual media (films, videos, sound recordings), current or upcoming installations in galleries and museums, and books or other publications. We are particularly interested in reviews that emphasize their subjectsí eclectic nature or creative innovation.
In keeping with Sensateís interest in a wide range of expression, we are open to different review formats, including those that engage with audio and visual imagery to convey their criticism.
Reviews or proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis for publication on Sensateís in-process website (www.sensatejournal.com). However, those who wish to have their work considered for publication in Sensateís inaugural issue in April 2011 should pay attention to the following deadlines.
Preferred deadline for review proposal or abstract: February 15, 2011
Final proposal deadline and preferred deadline for review submission: March 1, 2011
Final deadline for review submission: March 15, 2011
Reviews will be judged preferentially on a rolling schedule; those proposed or received earlier are more likely to be considered for publication in the issue as opposed to the site. We make no distinction in quality between the material published on a rolling basis on the site or in an issue. The selection of reviews for an issue is determined based on an eclectic mix of formats of reviews and their subject matter.
