Media-N: Journal of the New Media Caucus invites submissions for a special themed issue:

Trans New Media Art as Embodied Practice

Guest Editors: Ace Lehner (University of Vermont) & Chelsea Thompto (San Jose State University)

Deadline for abstracts: Monday, August 1, 2022

We invite abstracts for articles, artist's projects, interviews, and reviews for a special issue of Media-N: Journal of the New Media Caucus entitled “Trans New Media Art as Embodied Practice.”

Media-N seeks submissions that engage with trans lived experiences, identities, and methodologies as they intersect with digital art, media, and technology. This special issue asks: In what ways does trans lived experience inform new media art practice? And likewise, how might new media art practices inform and shape trans identities? How do trans new media art practices diverge from and/or intersect with queer approaches? And finally, how have artists working with new media illuminated the ways that “trans” is defined, embodied, legislated, and aestheticized differently throughout history and across global contexts?
