Call for papers: Submissions for the Issue 3 of Materia are now open and this time we are excited to invite authors to contribute to our first ever themed issue: Across Media. In previous issues of Materia we have had the privilege of working with a diverse and talented group of authors, with article topics ranging from early modern portraiture to devotional painting, modern and contemporary artists, as well as methodological and theoretical frameworks. Something we’ve noticed, however, is that relatively few articles have dealt with objects other than traditional easel paintings. Therefore, for our next issue we encourage authors to submit research on objects ranging from textiles, sculpture, wall paintings, ceramics, plastics, time-based media, lacquerware, metalwork, jewellery and glassware, as well as books, prints, and other paper-based objects. Please submit an abstract of 300-500 words to: For further information see our “Submission Guidelines”.

Abstract deadline: 31 January 2022
Article deadline: 20 March 2022
Note: Our subsequent Issue 4 will be a non-themed open call
(Submissions open: TBD early 2022).
