Call for Chapters: Contemporary Media Art in Ireland

New Media

Submissions are invited for a collection of essays provisionally entitled, Contemporary Media Art in Ireland. This will be a volume of essays that provides a detailed account of born-digital art in an Irish context.

For the purposes of this collection, “Irish” is considered in the broadest and most inclusive sense, and suitable artists and/or works should simply demonstrate some significant connection to the island and/or relevant subject matters. “Contemporary media art” is an equally inclusive term, and includes any form of artistic practice that is rendered on a screen of any type: electronic literature, video games, film, interactive performances, or any other type of experimental screen fiction or multimodal production.

Artists and practitioners are welcome to discuss their own contributions, though all submissions need to be presented in a scholarly fashion using an appropriate critical framework.


Proposals for 6,000-word chapters should be sent to

Proposals should be approximately 300-500 words in length, and give a clear indication of the proposed chapter’s content and significance. A biographical note should also be included.


A number of academic presses have expressed interest in this manuscript, so a draft will now be prepared. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the publisher.


James O’Sullivan is Lecturer in Digital Arts & Humanities at University College Cork. His work has been published in a variety of interdisciplinary journals, including Digital Humanities Quarterly, Digital Scholarship in the Humanities, and Hyperrhiz: New Media Cultures. He edited Reading Modernism with Machines (Palgrave MacMillan 2016) alongside Shawna Ross. He is also a published poet, and the founder of New Binary Press.
