Call for Papers

You can’t photograph a memory, but you can photograph a ruin.

CALL FOR PAPERS
Issue No. 3 MONUMENT

If colonial monuments can be understood as ruins, in the sense that they symbolise the destructive force of conquest, what can be salvaged from the framework of monumentalism?

INDEX JOURNAL invites papers that contemplate the relation between public monuments and ruin. Papers addressing monuments in the context of materiality, environment, image, emotion, revenge, authority, colonial expansion, white supremacy, and state propaganda are all encouraged and considered. Issue No. 3 is guest edited by Tristen Harwood, a Darwin-based Indigenous writer and critic.

Papers should be no more than 7,500 words and in accordance with the Chicago Manual of Style (Notes and Bibliography). Submit to editors@index-journal.org
