Special Issue of Interiors: Special Effects: Technology and the Interior Experience (July 2011)

INTERIORS: DESIGN, ARCHITECTURE, CULTURE – Berg Publishers
Call for Articles – Special Issue (Vol. 3 Issue 1 – 2012)
SPECIAL EFFECTS: TECHNOLOGY AND THE INTERIOR EXPERIENCE
Deadline for summaries: 31 July 2011.

The editors Anne Massey (Kingston University) and John Turpin (Washington State University) invite contributions to the journal’s 2012 special issue SPECIAL EFFECTS: Technology and the Interior Experience. This issue will examine the impact of technology on the development of the interior and the accompanying human experience. As the 21st century unfolds, technological additions, integrations and interventions have become more pervasive altering our interface with
the built environment and greatly impacting our perception of the world around us: requiring us to face reality on the one hand, and yet allowing us to slip into immersive fantasies on the other. The divisions between outside and inside have become more porous, with virtual worlds and lived experience colliding and coalescing. Gadgets for the home; technology and sustainable living; shopping and atmosphere; projecting digital place and the development of gendered technologies are all areas that are open for analysis from an interior studies perspective.

The editors welcome submissions of articles addressing the topic of the interior and technology broadly defined. Submissions reflecting the latest research on the interior from historians, practitioners and theorists are particularly welcomed. Principal articles of 5,000 to 7,000 words, including notes and references, with 4-8 illustrations are invited, and should be sent as an attachment to interiors@bergpublishers.com by 31st July 2010.

Further details of the Journal, including Notes for Contributors, are available at http://www.bergjournals.com/interiors.

If you have any queries about the Journal or about submitting an article, please contact us on this email address: interiors@bergpublishers.com.
