PROUDFLESH is very interested in the interrelated themes of memory, materiality, performance and culture, appealing to scholars in a variety of fields including cultural studies, performance studies, gender studies, anthropology, history, archeology and musicology, among others. We invite scholarly or creative works in the form of prose or poetic writing on topics ranging from objectification, being and becoming; the use and management of sites, bodies, monuments and objects at the individual, local and global scales from different social spaces and sectors of societies such as houses, ritual spaces, museums, touristic scapes, ethnoscapes and nation-states; histories of or contemporary movements of nationalism; silenced constituencies and struggles over power; history of negotiations of race and ethnicity, identity and belonging; cultural preservation and cultural consumption; object and profit oriented capitalist material practices; to the politics of the production and/or erasure of memory about the past, present and future. In addition to particular case studies we are specifically interested in papers that address theoretical and methodological questions.

Proudflesh is also seeking papers (5000-7000 words) for its upcoming themed issues on Memory and Materiality, Popular Music, Dance and Performativity, and Sexuality. We are particularly interested in papers engaging new intersections of the
above-named fields, from established and emerging authors.

Submission is for original and unpublished work. Submit all papers via the submission link at
