CfP: Interstices Under Construction Symposium. Auckland, 12-14 July 2018

Call for Papers: Interstices Under Construction Symposium. Auckland, 12-14 July 2018

Buildings, cities, landscapes, sculptures, paintings, and music, even, are already physically present and persisting in a present. Why theorise their presence, and what relevance could such a notion have for arts rooted in space?

You are invited to submit an abstract for the forthcoming Interstices ‘Under Construction Symposium’, inspired by the spark of presence and its spatial effects.

The full Call for Papers is available here.

Following the symposium, papers will be sought for Interstices issue. 20 on this same theme. For publishing options and the required formatting, please refer to the Guidelines for Submissions on the Interstices website.

The symposium will be run in conjunction with a colloquium led by Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht, Harold Marshall and other principal speakers to be announced.

Abstracts of 300 words may be forwarded to Sue Hedges up to 28 February 2018susan.hedges@aut.ac.nz

 

Conference organisers:

Ross Jenner, Andrew Barrie, Julia Gatley, University of Auckland

Andrew Douglas, Sue Hedges, Auckland University of Technology
