*Call for Proposals:*

*‘Grounded Place’A special issue of International Journal of Creative Media

*Guest Editors: Dafydd Sills-Jones (Auckland University of Technology) and
Paul Newland (Bath Spa University)*

We live in a world of ecological crisis; a world in which we are witnessing
sharpening class differences between a mobile global elite, economic
migrants, and an often still largely stationary working population. Shifts
in global and local power have seen the nation state, international capital
and grounded communities thrown into new combinations and relations.  In
response to these changes, how might moving media practitioners and artists
communicate, evoke or interrogate ‘groundedness’, or what Arif Dirlik
refers to as a sense of what is included in place ‘from within place’?
(Arif Dirlik, ‘Globalization, indigenism, social movements, and the
politics of place’, Localities, 1 (2011): pp.47-90).

Submissions could engage with this open question in many ways, including,
for example:

   - How might media practitioners and artists explore the relationship
   between groundedness, the extra-local, and the global?
   - What aesthetic judgements might media practitioners and artists make,
   develop or utilise in order to evoke a sense of (or relationship with)
   - How might media practitioners and artists usefully examine how far
   groundedness and an ecologically-based notion of ‘place’ might offer a way
   of resisting the universalising discourse of ‘development’?

Submissions might also engage with the following specific thematic areas:

   - indigenous epistemologies and ontologies
   - cosmopolitanism and aesthetics
   - revisiting Situationalist strategies
   - landscape
   - ruralism
   - the urban, exurban or suburban
   - phenomenology, memory and embodied knowledge
   - ecology
   - notions of belonging, home and homeliness
   - political resistance

The deadline for 300-word abstracts is *31 July 2019*. Email: Dafydd
Sills-Jones ([log in to unmask]) and Paul Newland (

We will accept work in one of three submission categories:

   - 'Single-Piece Explorations' (i.e. a single video or audio piece
   accompanied by a 1,500-word research statement)

   video, image and audio, accompanied by up to a 3,000-word route-map)
   - 'Practice Discoveries' (i.e. a 6,000-word article about an area of
   creative practice)

We also encourage reflections on practice-based research methods and
contexts that engage with the questions raised above.
