                        Call for Papers: 'depict'
                          Edited by Marj Kibby

Inspired by reflections on John Berger's Ways of Seeing on the occasion of his recent death, the M/C Journal 'depict' issue looks at the other side of the communication event - ways of representing, portraying, illustrating, rendering.

While articles could include the depiction of social groupings in the media, it would also cover a wider range of topics such as:

 * Visual representation of data
 * Self-representation and branding
 * Visual depiction and power relations
 * Pictograms and public communication
 * Internet memes and other forms of visual rhetoric
 * Visual communication in social media
 * Digital images and everyday aesthetics
 * Professional journalism and amateur news content

Prospective contributors should email an abstract of 100-250 words and a brief biography to the issue editors. Abstracts should include the article title and should describe your research question, approach, and argument. Biographies should be about three sentences (maximum 75 words) and should include your institutional affiliation and research interests. Articles should be 3000 words (plus bibliography). All articles will be refereed and must adhere to MLA style (6th edition). 

Please send any enquiries to depict at journal.media-culture.org.au. All articles must be submitted through the M/C Journal site. 

Article deadline:     16 June 2017
Issue release date:   16 Aug. 2017
