This call out has been on my deadlines posts for a while now, but since it’s getting closer I thought I’d give it a bigger plug, especially since the call for abstracts closes at the end of this month – 30th April 2014.
The theme for this issue has been set by the guest editor Kay Lawrence, and is “Landscape, Place and Identity in Craft and Design”.
From the site:
This issue of craft + design enquiry invites papers that explore and reflect upon these ideas about landscape, place and identity in relation to both Indigenous and non-Indigenous craft and design practice in Australia and globally. Or, to put it another way, writers might wish to consider how craft and design practitioners have employed the visual, material, spatial and temporal processes of their disciplines to interrogate questions of identity in relation to concepts of place and landscape.
There’s a lot more material about the related topics and the dates and deadlines on their website, so please go to the link above and check it out. This tiny abstract does not do the topic, nor the thoughtful presentation of it by Kay Lawrence AM, justice.
