Theme “Animals on the Screen”
Pigeon is a new radical animal reader published by Sybil Press. We seek new experimental, creative essays and literary works for issue 2 on the subject of “animals on the screen.” We understand animal in the larger sense, from the human and non-human animal to the monarch butterfly, and we are open to speculation on cosmic life and artificial intelligence. In terms of screens: we seek a hybrid discourse surrounding animal beings and being animal in the networked age from television, film, the post internet, holograms and virtual reality to other forms of representation and exploitation of otherness, gender, identity, and the environment, for example. In the spirit of “no gods; no masters,” contrarian paradigms and interdisciplinary critiques are desirable.
