CONTRIBUTING TO MIRROR OF RACE
The Mirror of Race project welcomes submissions from artists and writers from across the disciplines and careers, both academic and non-academic.
Submissions will be peer-reviewed by scholars, artists or practitioners in the appropriate field.
Contributions may be in the following forms:
1) Commentary or artwork inspired by a specific image in the collection.
2) Essays or artwork relating to general themes raised by the exhibition and the project as a whole.
Contributions should be original works.
The Mirror of Race project intends to engage audiences at all levels, from elementary school to graduate students, as well as the general public. For the most part, we are looking for contributions that a generally informed reader could understand. We would like to avoid academic jargon and scholasticism as much as possible.
Please do not submit unsolicited work. Instead, please write to the project director with a brief abstract or synopsis of your intended contribution.
Because the Mirror of Race has a variety of potential audiences, please include a brief statement about your intended audience (for example: elementary school teachers; general readers; high school students; college students; etc.).
Note that you do not have to be an academic scholar or artist to contribute to the project! If you are not, please provide a resume or curriculum vitae so that we may know more about your background.
If your proposal seems appropriate to our needs after a preliminary review, we will invite you to submit the complete work for a formal review.
The project has editors in the arts, the humanities, the social sciences, and the natural sciences. Once we have your completed work, the appropriate editor will review it or find a suitable expert to make the review.
To make an inquiry about submission, please email Gregory Fried, the project director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
