ZMJ Call For Papers: Deconstruction

Volume 10 n.1, 2020
Editors: Stefano Marino (University of Bologna), Ines Tolic (University of Bologna)

Deconstruction, understood both as a philosophical doctrine or concept (and hence as theory) and as practice of planning and realization, emerged during the 1970s and 1980s and rapidly disseminated in all fields of cultural, artistic and media production. After some decades since its inception, and on the basis of the persistence of deconstruction at least in some domains, the “ZoneModa Journal” monographic issue dedicated to deconstruction in 2020 aims at assessing the situation of deconstruction in our time and at inquiring into its consequences and implications. We especially invite authors to submit contributions focused on the several ramifications and intersections of deconstructive theories and practices in different but nevertheless always connected fields, such as, for example, philosophy, fashion, architecture, art, design, literature and music.
