Airea is a peer-reviewed, open-access, interdisciplinary journal operating at the nexus of intersections between inter, trans, and multi disciplinary artistic practices and research. It intends to map interdisciplinary territories between forms of contemporary art and technology, with particular focus on the way artistic methodologies, aesthetics and vocabularies are shifting in response to developing digital practices. Initially conceived to publish the proceedings of sIREN's (Interdisciplinary Research Network) Arts and Digital Practices conference in 2017, this journal acts as a channel of communication between artists and practices; concepts and tools. In doing so, we hope to more firmly embed a critical framework of interdisciplinary research into contemporary arts discourse. Airea welcomes contributions responding to our calls for submissions and publishes special issues to accommodate materials from the activities of sIREN and RAFT research networks of Edinburgh College of Art. 


Upcoming issues


Following our call "Revisiting Interdisciplinarity within collaborative and participatory creative practice" Airea: Arts and Interdisciplinary Research will publish two special issues:

iss. 2 "Revisiting interdisciplinarity within collaborative sonic practice" (guest ed. Sophia Lycouris, journal eds. Eleni-Ira Panourgia, Katerina Talianni and  Jack Walker) is scheduled to come out in October 2020;

iss. 3 "Interdisciplinary relationships within spaces and bodies of collaboration" will follow by the same editorial team.

The next call for abstracts will be announced in 2021. Please note that Airea does not review submissions on a running basis, but only in relation to thematised calls.
