Guidelines and Procedures for submitting Reviews and Interviews

(printer friendly available)


InTensions welcomes reviews of art exhibits, books, films, performances and interviews with artists whose work touches on the themes of the journal: the theatricality of power, corporealities of structural violence, and sensory regimes. We do not accept simultaneous submissions or previously published materials.

The following guidelines for authors apply:
  1. Reviews should not exceed 500 words and interviews should be approximately 1000 words including notes and references
  2. Images, which are highly encouraged, should be in jpeg or tiff format. These can be embedded in the main document or attached as separate documents. The author will assume responsibility for the authorized use of any images included.
  3. Documents should be submitted in Microsoft World only
  4. Documents must be for a standard 8.5"x11" page size, use a 12 pt font, and include 1" margins, page numbers.
  5. Endnotes rather than footnotes are requested.
  6. Submissions should be double-spaced. Captions, quotes, and references should be single spaced.
  7. The accuracy and completeness of the references is the responsibility of the author.
  8. For reviews:

    • - Include full name of author(s), affiliation, mailing and email address, telephone & fax numbers
    • - Full book or film reference or exhibit/performance information
