Burlington Magazine: Modern and Contemporary

We have been delighted with the response we have had to Burlington Contemporary, which the Burlington Magazine launched in October (http://contemporary.burlington.org.uk). This ambitious online publishing platform comprises a weekly reviews section, and will launch in 2019 a quarterly, open-access academic journal.

For the academic journal, we are seeking submissions on new research on art made during the current century. We aim to encourage good, accessible writing, which retains its clarity even when dealing with complex topics. In addition to bringing together the best research from around the world, we hope to reconsider how art history might be written for the art made today.

 

Our deadline for contributions to the inaugural issue is 1st January 2018.

The deadline for the following issue is 1st February 2018

If you would like to hear more about the platform, or discuss any proposals for articles, please don’t hesitate to be in touch.

With many thanks and best wishes,

Martha Barratt
