        Subject: Call for Papers: Fungiculture Issue #2 RHYTHMS

On behalf of Helen Stuhr-Rommereim, editor, Fungiculture Journal 
(helen at fufufo.com <mailto:helen at fufufo.com>)

Dear colleagues,

Please consider submitting to Fungiculture Journal's second issue!

This is our current call for papers:


Issue #2 -- RHYTHMS

Call for Projects:

Fungiculture http://www.fufufo.com/ is a psychedelic journal for 
cultural studies; a space for the experimental spread and cultivation of 
ideas and practices.

Our second issue will explore rhythms. We welcome projects that examine, 
both in form and content, the cadences at work in time, sleep, love, 
mathematics, sense, sex, memory, war, and other realms.

We are interested in the way rhythms act between instants as generative 
forces, cutting across temporalities and subjectivities. How does rhythm 
structure and deconstruct experience and materials?

Submissions may engage with, but are not limited to, discourses 
surrounding media studies, radical politics, aesthetics, ethics, 
philosophy, queer and affect theory. We welcome experimental, 
collaborative and traditional academic writing.

The selected projects will be published on the Fungiculture online 
platform and distributed as a PDF.



We welcome paper and project proposals of all varieties. Mixed-media and 
non-textual projects are encouraged, but we will primarily publish 
textual works, which can be both traditional academic papers and 
experimental writing pieces. See Issue #1  http://www.fufufo.com/  for 
examples. Published text pieces will be expected to be around 5,000 
words in length.

To submit, please send an abstract (not exceeding 500 words) to 
hello at fufufo.com <mailto:hello at fufufo.com> by June 14th 2015. Please 
include relevant images and sound samples, if applicable, and the 
authors' CVs or a description of relevant previous experience. Keep in 
mind that abstracts must explain not just the topic of interest but also 
the form and technical requirements of your proposed project.
