CFP: Politics and Art - Exploring the Intersection of Aesthetics and Political Economy
Call for Papers
Volume 67 (4/2022)
Extended submission deadline: January 31, 2023
I would like to apologize for any confusion or inconvenience regarding the deadline for submissions to the upcoming volume of The Polish Journal of Aesthetics on the relationship between aesthetics and politics. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the previous editors have been unable to establish stable communication with us, resulting in their removal from the project. As a result, we have extended the deadline for submissions for volume 67(4/2022) to January 31, 2023. We understand that this may cause some difficulties for those who have already submitted their work, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
With that being said, we are excited to announce a call for papers for the forthcoming volume of The Polish Journal of Aesthetics on the intersection of aesthetics and political economy. We invite researchers to submit articles that explore the relationship between aesthetics and politics. We are particularly interested in analyses of political conflicts, artists and art practices, and their relationship to economic systems and structures. However, we welcome submissions from all areas of art and aesthetics that relate to this theme. Some potential topics for articles include:
The role of art in times of war and conflict and its effects on economic systems
The exploitation of aesthetic norms in political marketing and its economic impact
The use of art as propaganda and its effects on political and economic ideologies
The relationship between the art market and profitability, and its influence on political economy
The impact of industrialization on aesthetic practices and the economic structures supporting them
The role of censorship in shaping aesthetic norms and its effects on political and economic power dynamics
The intersection of performance, entertainment, and politics, and its relationship to economic systems
The role of artists in political movements and struggles and their impact on economic structures
The use of symbols and techniques in political messaging and their relationship to economic ideologies
The question of acceptability in art and politics, and its effects on political economy
This list is by no means exhaustive, and we welcome submissions on any topic that relates to the intersection of aesthetics and political economy. We are particularly interested in articles that address gaps in current knowledge and highlight areas in need of further research, such as:
The effects of social media on the relationship between aesthetics and political economy
The role of art in political activism and social movements, and its relationship to economic structures and systems
The influence of globalization on political aesthetics and its effects on political economy
The intersection of aesthetics and politics in mass media and popular culture, and its relationship to economic systems
The relationship between aesthetics and political economy in non-Western cultures and contexts
Researchers from all backgrounds and perspectives are encouraged to submit their work. Please visit our website at https://pjaesthetics.uj.edu.pl/en_GB/ for more information and to submit your article.
