I’m late in seeing this, but the new journal from Imaging America on public scholarship, Public, has been announced and there’s a CFP for submissions. This is the Public website and the introductory information from the site is also below:
Public is a peer-reviewed multimedia e-journal for projects, pedagogies, resources and ideas incorporating humanities, arts, and design in public life. Like Imagining America, Public seeks rich engagements between a diverse range of participants, disciplines, sectors, and organizations, as well as between works in its interactive archive.
Public promotes vivid description and analysis, documentation, evaluation, inquiry, and critique of projects and partnerships incorporating humanities, arts, and design in public life. It encourages learning and research across the boundaries of discrete disciplines to better realize joint problem-solving and multi-sector contributions. It aspires to connect what we can imagine with what we can do through practice, scholarship, and action. Public is a forum for projects, pedagogies, resources, and ideas. As a project of the national consortium Imagining America: Artists and Scholars in Public Life, Public takes up Imagining America’s commitment to make visible the value of humanities, arts, and design in building democratic culture with people across traditional divisions of knowledge and from multiple contexts (educational, artistic, business, governmental, neighborhood-based, etc.).
Public will focus on ways that forms including performance, literature, design, sound, historical representation, video, photography, interactive media, and texts are integrated with other types of knowledge to animate and deepen engagement with civic life. We encourage public discussion and resource sharing through innovative uses of online and new media, including an innovative multimedia interface to a growing archive of issues and submissions. Public is committed to a multi-vocality that spans areas such as the arts in economic development, humanities and social justice, and design and environmental stewardship, and that highlights more than one perspective on its subjects and projects.
