T:vc (*Thresholds:Viewing Culture* is an inter-discplinary publication of 
the University of California, 
Santa Barbara

We accept submissions from 3 pages (precis) to 20 pages ("article" 
length).  We encourage experimentation in form and media.  


Introducing the first special issue of _Thresholds: viewing culture_:


	Is it possible for culture to be owned? If so, is it "owned" by
its producers or by its receivers? The metaphor of "ownership" is as
misleading as "author" or (the singular) "reader" because of the mediating
apparatuses of production, reception, and circulation. As our critical
discourses continue to undergo a procedure of self-revealing, their
attendant technologies emerge as conditions of historical agency.  The
medium may not be the message, but sometimes it is the "artist." In a time
when so much "content" is being translated into new "forms," does the
avail-ability of digital technologies to street-level producers make the
auratic original work an impossibility? Perhaps the lonely cogito of
traditional Western aesthetics is finding him-self under attack by the
tools he had thought mastered. Meanwhile, an heir apparent to the
traditional "I," the contemporary corporate legal entity is making
unprecedented claims on the flows and ebbs of public culture, now buying
and selling publicity itself. From 2-Live Crew to Bill Gates, and from
Negativland-as-semiotic-Robin-Hoods to Karen Carpenter-as-self-immolating-
Barbie-doll, the re-claimings and re-toolings of that "ambient publicity"
have emerged, once again, as key tasks for cultural politics.
	The special volume of T:vc hopes to bring these issues further 
into the foreground of contempo-rary debate and action. We will be 
reviewing abstracts and finished works that provide new histori-cal, 
political, and artistic insight into these relationships of knowledge, 
experience, and property. Possible topics include but are not limited to 
the following: authorship, originality, intellectual prop-erty rights, 
pirating/appropriation, property in the public/private sphere, 
corporatism, and internet culture. Since T:vc Volume 10 will be the first 
issue to make extensive use of Web-based publishing, submissions that 
take special advantage of this medium are particularly encouraged. 
Submissions deadline is March 1, 1996.

email inquiries may be sent to hawks@humanitas.ucsb.edu
