LEA Special Issue : Geography of Pain

Worldwide Call for Submissions

LEA Special Issue cfp: Geography of Pain
Guest Editors: Tom Ettinger and Diane Gromala (pain (at) astn.net)

As part of Leonardo's ongoing Art and Biology project, the Leonardo Electronic Almanac (ISSN No: 1071-4391) is seeking short texts (with imagery and project URLs) by artists and scientists, or artist/scientist teams, whose work addresses pain in all its forms. Projects of interest include aesthetic works that address subjective experiences, social conditions, and cultural constructions of pain. Projects on the art of healing are of interest as well, especially multidisciplinary approaches that integrate Eastern and Western traditions. We will also consider current health science, computer science, and engineering research relevant to these topics.

LEA encourages international artists / academics / researchers / students to submit their proposals for consideration. We particularly encourage authors outside North America and Europe to send proposals for articles/gallery/artists statements.

This LEA Special is part of a new collaborative initiative on pain management, founded by:
Julian Gresser, Chairman, Alliances for Discovery
Tom Ettinger, Yale University, and interim Executive Director, Art & Science Collaborations, Inc.
Diane Gromala, Georgia Institute of Technology
Roger Malina, Chairman and Editor, Leonardo

Interested authors should send:
- A brief description of proposed text (100 to 300 words)
- A brief author biography
- Any related URLs
- Contact details

In the subject heading of the email message, please use: Name of Artist/Project
Title: LEA Pain Management - Date Submitted.
