Culture Machine 3:
'Virologies: Culture and Contamination'

Edited by Dave Boothroyd and Diane Morgan

Culture Machine is currently seeking to publish work undertaken from a
variety of perspectives and disciplinary bases,
which addresses or proposes analyses of culture, cultural ‘phenomena’,
‘forms’, ‘practices’ and ‘events’, in relation to
theorizations of the nature/culture distinction and the ideas of the
human informed by post- and anti-humanist thinking.
technology as evolution; wetware/software/hardware: rethinking evolution
and developments in bio-sciences; AIDS and
the cultural imagination; psychoanalysis in post-human times; cultural
transmission and pedagogy; cultural studies as
resistance; cultural immunologies; viral communications;
cross-culturalism as 'infection', cultural mutations and the
evolution of hybridities;  purity and contamination in
post-anthropological thought; bodies, foreign bodies and anti-bodies:
new ideas of the counter-cultural; mutation vs. progress: the politics
of adaptation

Contributions, on such themes as those above and other related topics
suitable for this edition, in the form of original
finished articles, critical engagements with relevant key texts,
multi-media or hypertext  pieces and critical reviews, or
abstracts (of work in progress),  may be sent simultaneously to:,

All contributions will be peer-reviewed; all correspondence will be
responded to.
