Theory and Practice: The NEMPN Online Journal
Call for Papers: Theory and Practice: The Emerging Museum Professionals Journal is accepting submissions for its first issue, entitled, “Museum Futures: Technology, Culture, and Politics in the Shifting Paradigm”
Abstract Submission deadline: February 8 2018, 12:00 AM PST.
The future of museums is constantly in question, yet the shifting paradigms of museums throughout history have shown that museums are, in fact, adaptable. But, what does the museum of the future look like? How are current politics affecting the responsibilities of the museum? How does technology fit in? And how will culture change?
This issue seeks to answer these questions by exploring the transdisciplinary theories involved in the museum, as well as what we learn from practicing them. Through both positive and critical lenses, the journal will extract the key issues and findings that make the museum a unique space within the current social and political environment, and how that may or may not change in the future.
Deadline for Abstract Submission is February 8, 2018 to be included in the spring 2018 issue. Abstracts can be submitted at any time, and will be approved on a rolling basis. Your abstract should be no more than 150 words in length, and your submission should also include the following information:
- Email Address
- Keywords (up to 5)
- Proposal Type (research papers, forum articles, presentation, exhibition review, book review, other)
Submission of research papers, forum articles, presentations, exhibition reviews, and book reviews are welcome. MLA, APA, and Chicago formats are all welcome as we realize the inherent transdisciplinarity of the museum field.
Authors will be notified of their accepted proposals no later than February 18, 2018. Proposals that are submitted earlier may be notified earlier of their acceptance.
