For its twenty-first issue, InVisible Culture: An Electronic Journal for Visual Culture invites scholarly articles and creative works that address the topic of pursuit. We encourage authors and artists to reflect on the meaning and mechanics of pursuit across broad ranging phenomena.
Some possible topics of exploration are (but not limited to):
Purpose and purposelessness, means without ends
The “pursuit” of media: transmediality; new media; medium specificity; the myth of total cinema; pursuit of perfect software (FOSS, cloud storage, smartphone apps, etc.)
Paranoia, surveillance, cyberstalking
Futurity and speculation
Surpassing subject/object conditions
Labor, work, vocation, craft, profession
Utopias and heterotopias
Pursuit and politics: feminism, Occupy, Arab Spring; political investments in academia or other professional contexts
