The main motivation for this project is the facilitation of an interdisciplinary platform, bridging gaps between arts, sciences and technology.
We are convinced that the complexities of our technological surroundings require a variety of perspectives and that the concept of the interface cannot be limited to HCI paradigms but needs to include varieties of thresholds that connect and disconnect technologies and their subjects.
This platform initiates interdisciplinary dialogues about the historical, societal, political, cultural, artistic and aesthetic dimensions of the interface and encourages comprehensive, interdisciplinary perspectives to promote an understanding of the interface as a dynamic cultural phenomenon.
The Open Access Journal and Book Series is published in collaboration with our partner Heidelberg University Library, i.e. the open access publication project “arthistoricum.net.”
Each volume is available open access as PDF as well as a print-on-demand version which can be ordered via book retail, liable to costs.
We invite submissions (original papers, project or artwork descriptions) in English and do not charge any author fees. Please send an abstract of no more than 400 words to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are also open to suggestions for special sections, containing numerous works from a joint conference or panel under a shared topic.
Please refer to the journal style guidelines and any additional information regarding call for papers on this website before the submission of a full manuscript.
We are also looking for unknown or forgotten texts and artifacts that haven’t been made public or haven’t been translated into English yet. These are welcome in any language and we will do our best to resurface them at least partially as long as we can obtain the publishing rights. Please get in touch if you know of something you consider worthwhile.
