CFP In Other Words: Otherness

“PublicationCall for proposals: In Other Words (IOW), an online dictionary of contextualized keywords that focuses on how words (re)produce different forms of Otherness.

There is a recent increase of online dictionaries. So, what is IOW’s specificity?

  • The first is precisely its focus: how does a specific word, in a specific context, (re)produce Otherness? And how can discriminating narratives be contested, destablized, subverted?
  • The second is its structure: the discussion of the keywords is highly interdisciplinary, critical, and creative, using different elements from different fields – visual arts, literature, videos, media texts, etc.
  • The third is its addresses: the dictionary does not speak to academics only, but it is a resource to be used for free to favor discussions and appropriations in/by different educational and social contexts.
  • The fourth is its co-construction: it is a collaborative, ongoing project that welcomes the participation of scholars, teachers, practitioners, professionals, educators, activists, artists, individuals from different various fields, formations and experiences.

We invite you to have a tour of IOW dictionary. Submissions are welcome and peer-reviewed year round. For further info, please contact the Editorial Board. Looking forward to receiving your proposals!
