Dandelion is looking for submissions on the theme of Filth for the next issue.
Topics might include, but are not limited to:
- Materialist readings of filth
- Dirty cities: sewers, soot, smog, etc. and/or rural dirt
- Sartre’s visqueux; Kristeva’s abject; Bataille’s informe
- The social, political or environmental implications of filth
- Filth as matter out of place - displacements, borders and boundaries.
- Cultural representations of disease / narratives of infection or contagion
- Soiled, ruined or unclean: sexual activity and notions of impurity
We welcome both long and short articles. We also encourage conference and event reports, blog posts, reviews, podcasts and artwork.
