Summer is almost upon us, so it’s the perfect time to review a title or two for Visual Communication Quarterly. We welcome submissions from any faculty or graduate students of visual communication who can use their summer free time to strengthen CVs and support the scholarly community!
If you have a title in mind, please let me know and I will confirm that it fits the scope of the journal. I am also maintaining a wish list of scholarly titles on visual communication, and I would appreciate proposals to review any of the following recent books:
- Ubiquitous Photography by Martin Hand
- Image Studies: Theory and Practice by Sunil Manghani
- Architecture: The Making of Metaphors by Barie Fex-Barringten
- Photography: History and Theory by Jae Emerling
- The Multimedia Journalist by Jennifer George-Palilonis
- Bending the Frame: Photojournalism, Documentary, and the Citizen by Fred Ritchen
- Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher: The Epic Life and Immortal Photographs of Edward Curtis by Timothy Egan.
- Compelling Form: Architecture as Visual Persuasion by J. Donald Ragsdale.
- The Real Real Thing: The Model in the Mirror of Art by Wendy Steiner.
- Troubling Vision: Performance, Visuality and Blackness by Nicole R. Fleetwood
- Hide and Seek: Camouflage, Photography, and the Media of Reconnaissance by Hannah Rose Shell
- Speculating Daguerre: Art and Enterprise in the Work of LJM Daguerre by Stephen Pinson
- Photographic Memory: The Album in the Age of Photography by Verna Posever Curtis
- Naked Hollywood: Weegee in Los Angeles by Richard Meyer
A few general guidelines for reviews:
- Please confirm with me first before undertaking a review.
- We will strive to provide review copies from the publisher whenever possible.
- We typically seek reviews in the range of 800-1200 words, but could go longer in special cases, including multiple-title reviews.
- We are committed to including visual content with reviews wherever possible, so if you can identify particular images or pages in the book that would well accompany your review, then I will work with the publisher to secure permissions and reproducible files.
- We have a loose, rolling set of deadlines, so if we can get drafts submitted by Mar. 1, June 1, Sep. 1 or Dec. 1, then that will optimize the likelihood that we can include your review in the next upcoming issue.
If you have any further questions, please email me at email@example.com.
