Subject: CFP: "Technology and Historiography" (Reconstruction 4.1)


Please forward to potentially interested parties:

Technology has long been considered not only as a discrete tool but as a 
system for organizing ideas, practices, and politics. Our understanding 
of technology both as a tool and an ideology has been shaped recently by 
widespread and pronounced discourses of the ^”new^‘: identities, 
interfaces and institutions. To complicate and perhaps reject the 
corporate presentism that tends to pervade such accounts, we invite 
submissions for exploring the place of technology in history. Why is 
technology important for thinking not just about the present but about 
the past? How has technology changed our very ideas about history? About 
the writing of history? The Winter 2004 issue of Reconstruction, 
^”Technology and Historiography,^‘ will be dedicated to exploring these 
questions.

Reconstruction <http://www.reconstruction.ws> is a culture studies 
journal dedicated to fostering an intellectual community composed of 
scholars and their audience, granting them all the opportunity and 
ability to share thoughts and opinions on the most important and 
influential work in contemporary interdisciplinary studies.

^”Technology and Historiography^‘ will be published January 21, 2004.  
Submissions should be received no later than October 13, 2003 for 
consideration.  This issue is guest-edited by Haidee Wasson, McKnight 
Landgrant Professor of Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature at 
the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.

Submissions are encouraged from a variety of perspectives, including, 
but not limited to: geography, cultural studies, folklore, architecture, 
history, sociology, psychology, communications, music, political 
science, semiotics, theology, art history, queer theory, literature, 
criminology, urban planning, gender studies, theater and performance 
studies, etc. Both theoretical and empirical approaches are welcomed.

In matters of citation, it is assumed that the proper MLA format will be 
followed. Other citation formats are acceptable in respect to the 
disciplinary concerns of the author.

All submissions and submission queries should be written care of 
submissions-AT-reconstruction.ws.  Large files, such as Flash movies or 
essays with many large pictures, should be sent on a zip disk or CD-R 
to:

Reconstruction
104 East Hall
Bowling Green State University
Bowling Green, OH 43402
