Introducing the Abstract Writing Wizard of Design Incubation!

A tool to facilitate the writing of an academic abstract.

Do you struggle with composing an academic abstract? Have a great idea for a conference, paper, or other academic submission, but find that you don’t know where to start, or how best to structure your abstract?

Try out the Design Incubation Academic Abstract Outline Wizard. It doesn’t compose a final abstract, but will help you break your ideas down into key components, and it will email you your draft, so you can return to it later, for further development.

Please let us know what you think!

CFP — Issue 4: Archives | Full Bleed: A Journal of Art & Design

Deadline: January 1, 2020

CFP Website: https://www.full-bleed.org/submit

Full Bleed, an annual print and online journal of art and design, seeks submissions for its fourth issue, Archives, forthcoming in Spring 2020. In particular, we are looking for submissions that critique, investigate, or rely on archives of various kinds. We seek new writing about artists working with, playing with, re-contextualizing, or elevating archival materials; art/design projects responsive to historical documents; and essays, fictions, and poetry related to the work of archiving.

We would be excited to see submissions that address:

  • The construction of narrative through objects and historical documents.
  • Digital archiving as a subject for rumination.
  • New archives under development.
  • The ethics and politics of archival practices.

Published annually by the Maryland Institute College of Art, Full Bleed is committed to cultivating aesthetic experience and progressive design while furthering understanding of contemporary conditions. We favor criticism that emanates personality and experiments with form, as well as ambitious critical essays on cultural phenomena that are of active concern to living artists and designers.
