Thu Sep 05 11:22:58 GMT 2019

*CFP: ** IJCMR: Fiction Machines *_Deadline  30 October 2019_


In this special issue of the IJCMR we will ask how fictional methods are being employed to rethink and renegotiate our relationship with current and future technologies; how such methods can be used from activist and political perspectives; how they can address and critique post-truth conditions; how they can reveal forgotten histories and non-human perspectives; and how they can be used to speculate on, and design, new futures and new sorts of machine.

This special issue of International Journal of Creative Media Research invites practice based researchers with an interest in *Fiction Machines *to submit works that locate themselves around one of the following thematic strands:


·Activist fictions

·Speculative design fictions

·Non-human fictions

·Post-truth fictions

This special issue will be edited by *Charlie Tweed* (Bath Spa University), *Tony D Sampson* (UEL) and *Andy Weir* (Arts University Bournemouth).

The *deadline for submissions is* *30^th October 2019*^for publication in July 2020. Please email 300-word abstracts to Email: (c.tweed /at/ <mailto:(c.tweed /at/>

We will accept work in three submission categories:

·*'Single-Piece Explorations'*(i.e. a single video or audio piece accompanied by a 1,500-word research statement)

·*'Multi-Piece Portfolios'*(i.e. a number of mixed media artefacts like video, image and audio, accompanied by up to a 3,000-word commentary)
