An edited book on Visual Ecologies of Placemaking is under contract with Bloomsbury and, due to the recent withdrawal of two contributors, replacement chapters are needed. Preferred proposals would address the Arab and Islamic worlds and African American communities in the United States/the Black Lives Matter movement, to fill gaps left by the withdrawn contributions.
The multidisciplinary volume Visual Ecologies of Place-Making seeks to understand the ways in which place is made, apprehended, and negotiated through various visual, performative, and bodily acts. Visual Ecologies of Place-Making explores strategies and ecologies of place-making across three sections connected to 1) ritual and performance, 2) exclusion and appropriation, and 3) recovery and loss. Essay proposals of approximately 5000 words that address these themes from diverse perspectives, across disciplines, cultures, and time periods.
Please send abstracts of 250 words, along with a brief bio, to Pamela Stewart ([email protected]) and Leslie Atzmon ([email protected]) by July 20, 2021. For more information visit Visual Ecologies of Place-Making.
