The Comparative Media Arts Journal

The Comparative Media Arts Journal (CMA Journal) is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal of lively inquiry into visual culture, cinema studies, performance studies, and new media arts encouraging intermedial and comparative approaches geared towards publishing the work of early-career scholars and artists. Published twice yearly, each issue is focused by an aesthetic theme. Current graduate students, postdoctoral students, recent graduates and early-career (1-10 years of established practice) professors, independent scholars, and artists are invited to submit work for publication to CMA Journal. We welcome submissions of scholarly research and essays, exhibition and book reviews, experimental and creative writing, documentation of artworks in progress, documentation of completed projects, and case studies. Please see our current calls for papers and projects for details on how to submit.

Call for reviews

The CMA Journal is pleased to invite individuals to submit to an ongoing call for reviews. Supplementary to CMA’s semi-annual themed issues, the review series is a continuous academic platform that asks scholars, artists, curators, writers, and post-secondary students of all levels to engage in critical contemplation and reviews of exhibitions, art events, and publications.

Issue Thirteen: The Outside

The Outside, as conceived here, names the desire for escape from the interconnected systems and norms that entrap thought and alienate action. The Outside names the utopic horizon that might be found upon achieving such an escape. It names a place beyond the cultural forms that forestall liberatory consciousness, and beyond the totalizing economic and discursive forces that preclude liberation itself.
