Leonardo Call for Papers

The editors of Leonardo invite submissions exploring the theme "The Future of Art History in the Context of New Discoveries of Psychology and the Cognitive Sciences." We are interested not in purely historical perspectives, but in research looking to the future: What are the most promising new approaches? How can they aid our understanding of visual art? We are interested both in general programmatic statements and in innovative accounts of individual works of art. Find out more

Leonardo Music Journal Call for Papers
Volume 22: Acoustics

Immersed as we are in electronically mediated sound, at the end of the day---whether it's coming from ukuleles or earbuds---sound reaches us through acoustic pressure. The sheer physicality of sound, and its quirky interaction with our sense of hearing, has driven many a composer and sound artist to go back to the "year zero" in music---before the codification of melody, rhythm and harmony---and explore fundamental aspects of the physics and perception of sound. Deadline for rough proposals/queries: 15 October 2011. Find out more
