Opportunities and Open Calls

Deadline: 31 December 2024

We seek proposals from interested Guest Editors to craft and shepherd themed special sections that invite diverse and intersectional perspectives. The ideal Guest Editor can help to grow and decolonize Leonardo's contributor network by attracting authors from historically underrepresented demographics including Brown, Brown, Black, Indigenous and People of Color; marginalized genders; geographic underrepresentation; and additional historically underrepresented groups.

Publications

LABS, Vol. 2020

The Leonardo Abstracts Service (LABS) is an evolving, comprehensive database of thesis abstracts (PhD, Master's and MFA) on topics at the intersections between art, science and technology. This English-language database is hosted by Pomona College (Claremont, CA), under the direction of editor-in-chief Sheila Pinkel. Each year, in addition to being published in the database, a selection of abstracts chosen by a peer review panel for their special relevance are published annually on our website. We are pleased to present below the top-ranked thesis abstracts of 2020, and we congratulate the authors of the theses.
