Cultural Roots of Globalization
Leonardo Call for Papers
The editors of Leonardo seek papers about the cultural roots (artistic and scientific) of globalization. Possible topics include, but are not limited to :
- Cultural dimensions of globalization (phénomenon of " métissage ", transnational cultural relationships)
- Different cultural approaches to globalization
- Global climat (a sensorially experience of the climat as possible corrective of global thinking)
- Migrations (transportation in a globalized world, travel poetry, …)
- Geography in a globalized world (places, cities, continents, world regions, approaches to space and time in general)
- Internet and tele-technologies in their planetary dimensions (" Overview Effect ", use and consequenses of GPS and satellite technologies)
- Net Art, telematic art and planetary issues
- Art and biology
The Guest Editors for the project are: Julien Knebusch, Steve Dietz, Yukiko Shikata, Marina Grzinic, Annick Bureaud, Mark Beam and Roger Malina.
The articles selected by the editorial committee will be published whether in the " Texts & Essays " section of the Leonardo/OLATS website (www.olats.org/setF12.html), or in the " Global Crossing : The Cultural Roots of Globalization " section in the Leonardo Journal (MIT Press).
For authors Editorial Guidelines see:
Please note : Leonardo features articles written by artists about their own work, but we are also seeking articles by theorists, historians, and other scholars addressing how the work of artists and scientists has interacted with trends towards globalisation.
Material published on line as part of the project can be found at http://www.olats.org (projet singulier " Fondements Culturels de la Mondialisation ").
