Call for Submissions (abridged), special issue of Digital Creativity, 27:1, January 2016
Guest editors: Stanislav Roudavski and Jon McCormack
This special issue aims to audit existing conceptions of creativity in the light of non-anthropocentric interpretations of agency, autonomy, subjectivity, social practices and technologies. Specifically, it seeks to explore how 1) the agents, recipients and processes of creativity and 2) the purpose, value, ethics and politics of creativity relate to phenomena of computation. The editors encourage innovative narrative or visual strategies that can express relevant scenarios better that more typical forms of academic writing. Dialogues, conversations, plays, scripts, instruction sets, games or visual essays (for example) might be suitable alongside logical arguments or formulae. Initial proposals should be submitted as abstracts of 800–1200 words.
Abstracts due: May 15, 2015, to be sent as PDFs to Stanislav Roudavski at firstname.lastname@example.org as well as to the editors of Digital Creativity at email@example.com
