Open Call for Contributions

Open call for contributions

In addition to the special issue themes, Pacific Arts, the journal of the Pacific Arts Association, has an ONGOING OPEN CALL for submissions on the arts of Oceania and its diasporas focusing on visual arts, material cultures, and heritage arts. The scope is temporally broad, highlighting both historical and current topics while engaging with a wide range of creative mediums, forms, and subject matter. Pacific Arts encourages interdisciplinary approaches to examining the political, social, economic, cultural, aesthetic, and environmental stakes in the production and study of Indigenous visual and material cultures in Oceania, past and present.

The journal welcomes contributions from a variety of disciplines focusing on historical and present-day visual and material cultures of Oceania. Submissions can take the form of articles, discussion forums, research notes, and creative work.

Pacific Arts is also accepting reviews of books, media, and exhibitions that relate to visual and material cultures of Oceania. Authors, artists, museums, and publishers interested in having their work reviewed and anyone interested in writing a review should contact the book reviews editor Joslyn Chu at

Please send full-length submissions and an abstract to by February 1, 2022 (submissions received after this date will be considered). Submissions should follow the Pacific Arts style guide. Pacific Arts is a peer reviewed open access online journal published by the University of California/eScholarship that encourages broad participation and circulation.
