Kuckuck. Notizen zur Alltagskultur 2/20: “Climate” 

The issue 2/2020 of the magazine "kuckuck. Notizen zur Alltagskultur" aims to address the various aspects of climate from different interdisciplinary perspectives and to bring together the current debates on the cultural and social dimensions of climate change.

How can we approach climate as an object and field of research and what knowledge can we as cultural and social scientists contribute to make socio-cultural processes around climate change understandable and comprehensible?

Climate protest and activism, climate research, sensual and everyday dimensions of climate, negotiating climate knowledge and practices, morality and ethics, environmental awareness and sustainable consumption, green washing, post growth economics, climate and capitalism, climate conflicts and social inequalities - these and many other topics could be covered in the next issue.

We look forward to ideas and topic suggestions for scientific/essayistic or artistic contributions by April 19, 2020 to the following e-mail addresses:

Kuckuck. Notizen zur Alltagskultur 1/21: “Code“

In the age of ubiquitous digital computer technologies and human-machine collaborations, code is experiencing a revival in various contexts: source codes, binary codes and algorithms; software, encryption technologies and cryptography; numerical codes, formulas and
functions; (geo)mapping, biometrics or computational genomics.

Codes are attributions, representations and entanglements of information and meaning. They are relations and dependencies which they simultaneously co-produce. However, codes also enable practices of appropriation, counterdiscourse and reinterpretation or even become an end-in-itself in code art.

The 1/2021 issue of the magazine "kuckuck. Notizen zur Alltagskultur" focuses on code in its multiple forms, on its engineering and (de-)ciphering.

We are looking forward to abstracts and ideas for scientific/essayistic or artistic contributions until 15th August 2020. Please send your Abstract to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

The deadline for finished papers and contributions is January 30th, 2021.
