Design Ecologies 3.2: Plotting the continuum discusses the fundamental problems with today’s computational horizon through algorithmic computation and digital simulation, which can be divided into three categories:
1. Computational algorithms work with iteration as their operating kernel
2. Computational algorithms work with (real) numbers
3. The third problem with computational algorithms is that they are constructed on the basis of classical logic and thus possess – in contrast to common belief – a principally narrow if not skewed epistemological competence.
For Design Ecologies 3.2: Plotting the Continuum, we have invited the inimitable Reza Negarestani to write the ideation article in response to the other article selected for this issue of Design Ecologies.
We invite submissions of articles from any discipline to speculate on the formation of your projects/ buildings/ performances as a critical practice that activates our understanding of intuition, inventory and discovery in architecture. The four areas of interest include:
1. Ecological design visions.
2. Notational design
3. Instructional design visions.
4. Aesthetical design visions
We also welcome case studies and project profiles of 1–5 pages in length
Submissions are welcome from both scholars and practitioners. Contributions may be between 3,000 and 7,000 words and should be accessible to the non-specialist reader. Papers must be submitted in English.
Please send all submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Call for Articles and Visual Essays
- The relation to movements in research-led teaching in Higher Education?
- The influence on Art and Design in Primary (Elementary) and Secondary (High) schools?
- The consequences for research in vocational education?
Call for submissions
18th - 22nd June
Intellect is pleased to be attending the European Network for Cinema and Media Studies conference in Milan this year. Intellect has attended for the past few years and has always found the event to be a great opportunity to connect with existing and potential authors.
If you are interested in discussing publishing opportunities for either a book or in one of our journals then please get in touch with Alice Gillam (email@example.com) to arrange a meeting, or drop by the stand during the conference.
We are arranging an event during the conference with two of our editors, Flavia Laviosa, editor of the Journal of Italian Cinema and Media and Lydia Papadimitriou, editor of Journal of Greek Media and Culture. This will take place at 12.45 on Friday by Intellect's book stand.
Intellect Twitter chat starts 3rd July at 4.30 BST
Intellect is excited to announce that, following the success of our Fandom tweet chat during Fandom Phenomena Week, we are extending the idea. Starting on the 3rd July we will be organising a monthly tweet chat with our authors and editors.
The tweet chat will take place on the first Thursday of every month at 4.30 BST and the subjects will be as follows-
Thursday 2nd October – The concept of popular television and where it sits within the academy
We will be using the hashtag #IntellectChat. If you want to take part please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or feel free to just drop in and chat with our community.
