Cultural & Media Studies
The Journal of Curatorial Studies invites original research articles on the subject of curating and exhibitions, as well as case studies, interviews and reviews of exhibitions, conferences and books.
The Journal of Curatorial Studies is a new international, peer-reviewed publication that explores the increasing relevance of curating and its impact on exhibitions, institutions, audiences, aesthetics and display culture. Inviting perspectives from visual studies, art history, museum studies, critical theory, cultural studies and other academic fields, the journal encompasses a diversity of disciplinary approaches on curating and exhibitions broadly defined. By catalyzing debate and serving as a venue for the emerging discipline of curatorial studies, this journal encourages the development of the theory, practice and history of curating, as well as the analysis of exhibitions and display culture in general.

Exciting Friday news...
The Big Picture Issue 11 is now available to download for FREE.
Ahead of the print edition being available to pick up at select independent cinemas from November 20th, you can now download the new issue to enjoy in its full small screen glory. OK so it doesn't smell as nice as the print version, but it's still rather tasty.
Themed around the re-release of Boudu Saved From Drowning - Jean Renoir's hilarious and raucous exposé of the hypocrisy of the bourgeoisie - the issue explores prejudice, class divide and life on the skids. Along with the usual roundup of classic film posters, features include a look at the Coke bottle from The Gods Must Be Crazy as iconic symbol, Scotland's Screen Machine mobile cinema, a location focus on Beverly Hills, 1000 words on Melvin Peebles, Black Power and the Birth of Blaxploitation and a profile on film poster artists All City Media.
Intellect is delighted to announce the launch of the new journal Performing Ethos: International Journal of Ethics in Theatre & Performance.
The journal will be launched at The Author and the Audience symposium at University of Leeds on Saturday 6th November, which will be held in conjunction with two performances of Tim Crouch's highly acclaimed new play The Author.
This one-day symposium event brings together theatre artists and critics for a day of open debate featuring papers, readings of new work, and roundtable discussions. The Author will provide a jumping-off point for a broader discussion of the relationship between writer and spectator in contemporary theatre practice. The symposium will examine such questions as 'How is the spectator being involved – and even implicated – in the events enacted?' and 'What ethical and aesthetic issues arise when the audience is made explicitly “responsible” for what it is watching?'
The launch of the journal will follow the symposium. Performing Ethos addresses ethical questions raised in contemporary theatre and live performance, both within the politically and aesthetically radical, and the mainstream.
