Publishing monthly, the journal is aimed at whoever has an interest in the power and role of images within society. Approaching this theme from a variety of perspectives and fields, Anima Loci welcomes the work of contributors from both academics and practitioners from a range of backgrounds including (but not limited to): writers, researchers, scientists, artists, philosophers, poets, designers, architects, photographers.
The journal publishes academic papers as well as first-person narratives and photoessays. Whilst rigorous in their investigations and use of theoretical frameworks, the texts should be also accessible to a non-specialist audience of readers.
Each article should be between 600 and 2000 words and should be accompanied by at least one image related to the subject.
If you would like to submit a piece for publication, please email email@example.com with the following materials:
- A title and 150-250 word abstract for the article
- 1 relevant key image that will illustrate the article
- A 150-250 word biography for each author of the article
