Special Themed Issue: Experimental / Avant-Garde / The Archive

The editors of THE MOVING IMAGE seek proposals or completed essays for consideration in a special themed issue on experimental/avant-garde moving images and the archive, which will be published in 2012. One page proposals are due no later than Dec. 31, 2010. Essays are due no later than Apr. 1, 2011. The forum section of the journal is not peer-reviewed and is designed to feature shorter, less traditionally “scholarly” work such as interviews with artists, think pieces on the challenges of working with experimental moving image materials, or profiles of archival collections. Essays in the “main” section of the journal are double-blind peer reviewed.

Topics for ARTICLES might include but are by no means limited to:

Examinations of individual archival collections/holdings

Archivally-inflected scholarship focused on a particular maker

Archivally-oriented close readings of films/videos/installations/performances

Scholarship on a filmmaker’s papers or films/videos

Discussions of preservation and restoration

Explorations of distribution and access

Because the journal features a FORUM section, we also welcome and encourage:

Interviews (with filmmakers, video artists, archivists,
distributors, collectors)

Short “notes from the field” essays


Roundtable discussions (albeit virtual)

“State of the field” observations

THE MOVING IMAGE is the journal of the Association of Moving Image Archivists. For more information, please visit our website at:
