Call For Writers
Gender Across Borders is planning a series to run mid-April on “Visualizing our World’s Future: How Techniques and Tools of Visuality are Being Used to Raise Awareness, Communicate and Make Change.” The site is currently soliciting writers to contribute articles relating to this topic. If you enjoy writing and have a passion for the visual or performing arts, film, critical theory, gender studies, environmental studies, international politics or human rights, this is a great opportunity to put those interests to use.
Articles should be on contemporary subjects and would preferably address the critical concerns of global or transnational groups. Ideally, recent art objects/exhibitions and films will be discussed as well as archival activist footage, political campaign memorabilia, international internet sensations and the like. Articles should be between 300 and 1500 words in length and would preferably include accompanying images, videos and hyperlink citations. Gender Across Borders is open to creative topics and approaches, so please feel free to send an email if you are uncertain as to whether or not your piece fits these parameters.
To apply, please submit your article along with a resume OR short description of background and interests to Roxanne at firstname.lastname@example.org by 10pm (CST) April 3rd, 2010. Decisions will be made by April 8th, 2010 and all contributors must be available via email between April 8th and 15th to participate in the editing and uploading process.
No previous professional writing or blogging experience necessary. College students and recent grads are encouraged to apply.
Please address any questions or concerns to the visual arts editor listed above.
