Call for Curators: Special Issue of In Media Res: Representations of Xenophobia, Racism, and Nationalism. Deadline: 4 February 2022.
Ideologies of racism, nationalism, and xenophobia have always existed. They are certainly dangerous and spread all over the world. However, there appears to be a recent increase in the depictions of these themes in film and media. In Media Res is looking to explore the representation of racist violence, aggressive expressions of nationalism, and social exclusion in film and media.
The goal is to examine these themes in film and media in more detail; from many perspectives and variable aspects in politics, society, psychology, culture, and many more. They are inviting submissions proposals which deal with one or more of the following issues: xenophobia; racism; racist hatred/violence; (religious/ethnic) intolerance; social exclusion; discrimination; nationalism; eurocentrism. This call for proposals aims to devote considerable attention to how the phenomena of racism, nationalism and xenophobia are represented in artistic practices in film, and media.
