WHO: researchers, educators, artists and designers interested in textiles and textile design.
WHAT: DUCK is a new open access peer reviewed online journal for research in textiles and textile design. Duck provides an opportunity to engage in debate around textiles and textile design encompassing a range of approaches, disciplines and outcomes. The current call for contributions is 'What is textile design research?'. Research for textiles is broad and far reaching. Historical, theoretical, technical, scientific, commercial and aesthetic strands interweave to create a complex and interdisciplinary field of investigation and invention. The intention of the first call for submissions to DUCK is to explore the nature and significance of current Textile Design research and establish a platform for future discourse.
DETAILS: contributions may take the form of written texts (maximum 5,000 words), visual essays, a series of images relating to methods (sketchbook style), visual diaries or other methods deemed appropriate. Duck does not advise a particular format for written submissions although ask that contributors present their ideas in an accessible format for Duck's diverse readership of researchers, educators, artists and designers. For written texts the Harvard System of referencing is preferred. Images should be 300dpi where possible, RGB format and submitted as TIFF or JPEG files. Text should be provided in MS Word (.doc), rich text (.rtf) or pdf format. For submission themes contact L.R.Moriarty@lboro.ac.uk
