The editors of Trespassing Journal seek articles for its in-progress inaugural issue to be published online in Fall 2011.
Trespassing Journal is a new, fully peer-reviewed biannual journal that is committed to publishing fresh and original research in the fields of artistic production (including literature, film, new media, video-art, fine arts, experimental and avant-garde art, etc.) that trespass the sacrosanct grounds of the theoretical and artistic disciplines, and also question the established boundaries between art, science and philosophy.

The inaugural issue of Trespassing Journal focuses on trespassing the nation. While the civil movements in the Middle East react against the abuse of power, the phenomenology of the nation-state and its authority still remains a contested issue. Furthermore, with the globalized world economy and culture, and with the unlimited coverage of digital media online and Internet technologies, it has become harder to define the limits and the boundaries of the national. In this context, the relationship between art and the nation/national is an intriguing juncture especially for the works of art that do not fit the national imagination. What is at stake in producing art works that contest national ideologies in our global world? How can works created within ethnic minorities offer formal experiments in political and artistic expression? How do global media enable the trespassing of the nation? From this perspective the inaugural issue of Trespassing Journal creates an alternative intellectual ground where the national is trespassed, negated, transformed, and mediated in order to reveal and challenge the grand narrative of the nation.
Areas of exploration/inquiry include but are not limited to:
- National/Transnational/International Art
