Call for Papers
Due Date
Su 3.7.2022

The call for papers is open for publication in issue no. 6 of the 2nd series of the journal PSIAX: Studies and Reflections on Drawing, which will deal with issues related to "Writing on, for and with Drawing".

There are various possible fields of action where we can find the relationship between writing and drawing: in the "visual" translation, as in the classical ekphrasis; in the theoretical and critical reflection on the practice of its multiple imagetic connections; in the use of the free exercise of expression and composition; in writing itself when it becomes an image or visual object.
PSIAX#6 of the journal intends to show drawings, artistic projects, images, articles, essays, contextualizing or critical texts that give an account of and/or problematize the experience of writing about, for and with drawing.

Any format submitted (text or project) for evaluation should be sent to until the 3rd July 2022, in any of the following languages: Portuguese, Spanish, French, English and Italian.

Contributions as articles, essays, texts, should have no less than 11000 and no more than and 2100 characters, including spaces. Proposals must include an abstract with a maximum of 300 words in Portuguese and English; 4 keywords and a biographical note with 50 words.

Written contributions should be sent in a single word file, with the text in Times New Roman, size 12, 1.5 line spacing and justified. Footnotes and references should be formatted in size 10, single line spacing, according to APA style 6. Bibliographical references should be integrated into the text. The quotations up to 3 lines should be inserted in the text between inverted commas and followed by the appropriate references. Quotations longer than 3 lines must be separated from the text using Times New Roman font, size 10, single spaced, justified and indented 4 cm from the left margin.

Each artistic project contribution (drawings, art projects, images) must have a limit of 10 images. The images, in .jpg or .tiff format, with a minimum of 7.5 x 10 cm, 300 dpi, must be identified in the text body and in the file, accompanied by a technical file and referenced, and must include an abstract with a maximum of 500 words in Portuguese and English; 4 keywords and a biographical note with 50 words.

Articles are selected by the editorial board. They are then submitted to a double-blind peer-review process. The committee reserves the right not to publish articles that do not follow the review recommendations. By September 1, 2022 applicants will be informed whether their proposal has been accepted.
