Call for Papers: Studia Politica, Special issue on “Art and Politics” No.4/2011

We invite contributions for a special issue of Studia Politica that explores the relationship between art and politics in postcommunist contexts. We welcome interdisciplinary approaches of these topics in English, French or Romanian.

We are especially interested in submissions that situate communist art and culture in their connections to politics in the post-communist countries of Central and Eastern Europe. Questions contributors might address include, but are not limited to:

How were artistic institutions transformed by the changes of regime?
How did the double transition (political and economic) affect the artistic domain?
How are artistic discourses transformed in the aftermath of communism?
How is the communist past deconstructed by artists?
Which is, comparatively, the approach of the post-communist states towards the artistic world?

Approaches of the various artistic contexts during the communist period are also welcomed.

Submission Guidelines: the articles should have 40.000 characters (including spaces).

Please consult our Author Guidelines before submitting your article at: s.

The deadline to submit your articles is October 15, 2011.
