Confabulations: Art Practice, Art History, Critical Medical Humanities is envisioned as a two-year series of monthly online events beginning in fall 2021 and leading up to an edited volume of texts, artworks, and documentation of artworks. We invite expressions of interest for the series, the edited volume, or both. Please submit an approximately 250-word abstract of your proposed contribution, including your preferred timing (i.e. when you wish to present) and a description of the nature of your contribution (talk, workshop, reading, performance, work-in-progress presentation, etc.), a short CV, and, if appropriate, audio-visual documentation. Collaborative submissions are very much encouraged. Organizers are hoping to group submissions together for the online events, but submissions of pre-formed events are welcome. Subject to participants’ agreement, contributions will be available online for a short, limited time after each event. Independent artists and scholars and those in precarious positions will be compensated for their contributions in line with the CARFAC-RAAV Minimum Recommended Fee Schedule.
Submissions should be sent according to the deadlines below to: Dr Fiona Johnstone (firstname.lastname@example.org), Dr Allison Morehead (email@example.com); Dr Imogen Wiltshire (firstname.lastname@example.org).
