20/20 Vision: Citizenship, Space, Renewal
The first thematic scope of "20/20 Vision" is citizenship. We thus welcome papers targeting the idea of citizenship from various historical, political, ethical, and aesthetic perspectives, and addressing questions about the archaic, residual or emergent forms, styles and norms of being a citizen. The second theme "20/20 Vision" addresses is space, a general umbrella term for the issues related to the environment. The theme of space also relates issues connected with spatiality on a different dimension. The last focus area of "20/20 Vision" is perhaps the broadest of the three: the idea of renewal. While strongly related to the issues of citizenship and space, where it may also serve as a reflective angle, the theme of renewal on its own relates to a strong appeal in the American culture of the discourse of rebirth, reawakening, and revolution.
