Open Call for papers in n.paradoxa from women artists, curators and scholars.
n.paradoxa publishes new and innovative research by women artists, curators, scholars and writers focused on artworks produced by contemporary women artists from around the world today. The aim of this journal is to rethink the local and specific in women’s art practices in the field of contemporary art in relation to the national, international and global dynamics of art today and to promote new directions in feminist research and scholarship. The journal encourages work which is comparative, transnational, multi-generational and critically explores nationalism(s) and discriminations of all kinds beyond and including those created by ethnicity, class, sexuality, racism and sexism (now commonly referred to as intersectionality).
