Open Call for Submissions to Prospectives: Issue 03

20 April 2022

The academic journal, published by the B-Pro team at The Bartlett School of Architecture, is calling for papers for its third issue.

Gaming Consensus RC1

Prospectives Journal is an open access journal published by B-Pro at The Bartlett School of Architecture. Launched in November 2020, the team are now compiling a ground-breaking third issue, Climate F(r)ictions, curated by Déborah López and Hadin Charbel.  
This third issue will explore the implications of technology on humans and ecologies in the era of climate catastrophes and increasing instability. It will ask: can technology be designed and utilised without falling into territorialising tropes? Can AI be used to challenge current production-based economies? How can existing power structures be subverted? What decisions would nature make if it could govern itself? What kinds of technologies, protocols and policies can afford such autonomy? How would this affect architectural production, design and habitation at individual, urban and larger ecological scales?  
The editorial team are inviting submissions from designers, researchers and thinkers. Submissions can focus on either a short positional (1500-2000 words) or research papers (3000-5000 words). Submissions will be peer reviewed by Prospectives Journal’s Advisory Board. 


The deadline for papers is 01 June 2022, and the new issue of Prospectives will be published on 29 July.  


To submit papers, please fill in the online application form and email your submission to bartlettprospectivesjournal@ucl.ac.uk with the subject line: “Open Call Submission Prospectives Issue 3 SURNAME_POSITION or RESEARCH PAPER_paper title”. Files should be named in the same manner. All files should be supplied as Word documents, with citations following Vancouver referencing conventions.
