CFP Art in Diverse Settings


We are delighted to invite chapter contributions for the forthcoming book Art in diverse settings. We have signed a contract with the global academic publisher Sense and we expect to repeat the successful experience with the publication of our former book Art and intercultural dialogue (Sense, 2016). We plan to publish the manuscript one year from now.

We have secured twelve chapters, which is a very good start, but there is room for more chapters (as we do not discard the possibility of a two volume publication) so we are still in the process of gathering new authors. Our aim is to guarantee the global scope, diversity of views, quality and relevance. You may find below the provisory table of contents (to review in accordance with chapter titles).

We invite submissions for an edited volume concerning the role of art in diverse social settings. Contributions range from theoretical to methodological approaches, thus the chapters in the book can be seen as exemplary case studies, describing concrete intervention projects which use some form of art (photography, literature, poetry, music, drama, film, illustration, graffiti,…) or composed artistic expression (such as pop-art, street art, video-art…) as medium for communication in the contexts of social and professional organizations, public spaces or the community in general. The collection is intended to include a wide range of theoretical and methodological approaches highlighting a variety of conceptual, contextual and cultural issues. Please find below a list of relevant chapters/ themes for the volume.

Should you be interested please send your biographical note (of aprox. 200 words), the title of your chapter and an abstract of 300 words to both Susana Gonçalves and Suzanne Majhanovich. Full papers (of aprox. 5000 words, including notes and references) will be due August 30th, 2017.
