Call for Contributions for Vol. 5 of the International Yearbook of Futurism Studies, concerned with Women
Futurists and Women artists influenced by Futurism outside Italy:
International Yearbook of Futurism Studies 5 (2015) will be a special issue concerned with women Futurists and women artists influenced by Futurism. The volume will contain some 15-18 essays on a number of women actively supporting Futurism (e.g. Ruzena Zatkova, Edyth von Haynau), others periodically involved with the movement (e.g. Valentine de Saint Point, Mina Loy, Aleksandra Ekster, Elena Guro, Olga Rozanova), others again inspired by certain aspects of the movement (e.g. Alice Bailly, Siri Derkert, Agnes Cleve). I also want to cover the Ultraistas Norah Borges, Concha Espina and Maruja Mallo, Kinetismus as an Austrian adaptation of Futurism by Giovanna Klien, the women Vorticists Kate Lechmere, Jessica Dismorr and Helen Saunders.
The deadline is 1 July 2014 for a publication date of 1 March 2015.
Currently, ten proposals have been received. I am still looking for further suggestions. Abstracts should be directed to “Gunter Berghaus” G.Berghaus@bristol.ac.uk
