Call for Submissions — Ancestral Futures: Speculative Imaginings from the Archive

Ancestral Futures: Speculative Imaginings from the Archive
An Arts & Literary Magazine from SCUA

What stories can we find in the archives about Black, Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC)? Whose stories are missing, and what new creations can these archives (or the gaps in them) inspire?

UCR Special Collections & University Archives invites everyone, including members of the general public, artists, writers, poets, and creatives, to visit the archives and speculate how these materials can be reimagined, and metaphorically remixed, to tell new stories. We seek submissions that draw from Afrofuturism, Latinx/Chicanx Futurisms, Indigenous Futurisms, Asian Futurity, and related fields to explore how the intersection of art and archives can inspire new ideas, interpretations, and engagement with the past. 

Call for Submissions: Due November 22, 2023
Micro-fiction | Poetry | Digitized Art
