Call for Articles, Essays and Others

News from Sep 11, 2012

Call for articles, (audio-)visual essays, and others.

Deadline: December 01, 2012.

 

The upcoming special issue of Cadernos de Arte e Antropologia (Journal of Art and Anthropology, CadernosAA) – “Anthropology, ethnography and artistic praxis” – aims to make a contribution to the ongoing reflection on the relations between art, ethnography and anthropology, drawing on the work of social scientists and artists alike, within their respective fields of knowledge and expression.

 

Artistic practices are a sophisticated way for the analysis and comprehension of today’s world, allowing access to the multiple senses of agency, and projects of different social agents.

 

Proposals for publication within the various sections of the journal (Articles, Audio-visual essays, Ethno-arts, Field diaries, Review essays) should consider at least one of the following aspects, which reflect some of the current trends of the academic discussion of the links between art and anthropology:

 

1) The understanding of art as a system of action (Gell), and the way such a perspective may contribute to the analysis of art-worlds (Becker) and their networks of intentionality, comprising the contexts of production, circulation and reception of artistic work.

 

2) Questioning of the methodological “traffic” between art and anthropology, with regard to anthropology’s “relational” practices and its representation of the “Other” (Schneider e Wrigth).The upcoming special issue of Cadernos de Arte e Antropologia (Journal of Art and Anthropology, CadernosAA) – “Anthropology, ethnography and artistic praxis” – aims to make a contribution to the ongoing reflection on the relations between art, ethnography and anthropology, drawing on the work of social scientists and artists alike, within their respective fields of knowledge and expression.

 

Guest editors: Sonia Vespeira de Almeida e Ilka Boaventura Leite
