Call for _Perspectives

On_Culture: The Open Journal for the Study of Culture is a biannual, peer-reviewed academic Open Access journal that also features the section _Perspectives devoted to shorter, creative pieces pertaining to each concept-based issue. You’re welcome to submit interviews, opinion pieces, reviews of exhibitions and events, photo galleries, videos, works of art… and more! Our platform allows for the presentation of various media, from textual formats, film and images to hybrid and experimental forms.


These contributions can be submitted at any time on a rolling basis.


The themes and concepts of previous issues range from the Nonhuman to Alterity or Surveillance Cultures. Our latest Call for Abstracts focuses on the concept of love, seeking to address its role in political struggles, cultural theories, and artistic expression. As a concept simultaneously central and marginalized within the humanities and the arts, love has been theorized in various and often contradictory ways. It has been seen as both oppressive and liberational; on the one hand, serving political and economic agendas and, on the other hand, as itself conducive to solidarity within political action. It is the goal of the ninth issue of On_Culture to open-up the complexity presented by “love” and its relevance to cultural discourses within academic debates, the political present and its horizons. 

Submissions are possible for all past and future issues, topics so far have included:

We would like to invite everyone, including scholars and students, artists or journalists, to add to the growing selection of pieces. If you are interested in contributing a _Perspective related to one of the issues, please get in touch with the editorial team at any time:
