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?

Intellect is excited to be one of the main sponsors of the forthcoming Fashion in Fiction Conference
Fashion in Fiction: Style Stories and Transglobal Narratives 2014 will focus on the material and non-material forms of fashion for a range of professional, commercial, historical, social, cultural and creative purposes. The conference will be international and cross-cultural in order to highlight the largely transglobal, transcultural multiple flows of fashion discourse and to broaden the analysis of fashion beyond a purely traditional Western frame of analysis.

Call for papers
JAWS: Journal of Arts Writing by Students is the first UK journal of academic work for and by art students, serving as a platform for peer to peer engagement and for research currently taking place within institutions as part of post and undergraduate study. The journal seeks submissions from current students in the arts across the disciplines (including fine art, research, performance, textiles, graphics and illustration) and those within their first year of graduation. Predominately aimed at those studying at postgraduate level, JAWS is the first academic arts journal entirely produced by and dedicated to current students work. It works to open new lines of discourse and collaboration and seeks to promote early career researchers across a wider academic community, demonstrating the ability, dedication and professionalism of it’s students.
Focus on National Cinema, Auteurism, and Genre
Film Matters, published by Intellect, is seeking papers written by undergraduate film scholars for issues 6.2 (2015) for a special issue guest edited by Margaret C. Flinn and her students from Ohio State University. For more information about Film Matters, please visit:
Read the interviews with Katherine Larson and Lynn Zubernis about their own fandom and what compelled them to edit their new book Fan Phenomena: Supernatural.
We started out as fans of the series and then began examining what was happening to us, in part because our reaction to the show was so visceral and compelling – really like nothing we’d ever encountered before. This of course led to research – it’s what we do as academics – and the discovery of an entire field of study. First we were hooked on the show and then we were hooked on the field itself. After that there was no looking back. And, after researching the Supernatural fandom for several years and from all perspectives (that of the fan, the producer and the academics) and producing two other books on the fandom, it seemed a natural fit to edit this volume. It was also a place where we could allow some of those other voices – fan and producer – to exist side by side with the more academic explorations of the series.
