Call for Papers
Contributions in English, German, French, Portuguese, Czech, Spanish and Italian should be submitted to rainer [dot] guldin [at] usi [dot] ch
All papers are thoroughly double-blind peer-reviewed for originality, soundness, significance and relevance. Authors will be notified of the status of their papers within three months of submission. The journal publishes papers up to 8500 words, as well as shorter texts up to 3000 (event reports, reviews of books, comments on papers etc.).
Flusser Studies is aimed at a reading audience already familiar with the general outline of Flusser’s philosophy as well as with the essentials of his biography. General introductory references to the life and work of Vilém Flusser should, therefore, be avoided.
Flusser Studies is published twice a year (May and November).
Vilém Flusser as a Writer (March 15, 2018 // May 2018)
The May 2017 issue of Flusser Studies is dedicated to the fictional and literary dimension of Vilém Flusser’s work. What are his different writing-styles and his main rhetorical strategies? How do his texts work? What is the role of fiction in his thinking and writing?
The deadline for submissions for the issue is March 15, 2018. We look forward to hearing from and working with you. Please let us know if you are interested in contributing and if you have any questions.

Extended Call for Papers: Flusser on Judaism (September 15, 2018 // November 2018)
The focus of the November 2018 issue of Flusser Studies is upon Vilém Flusser’s relationship to Judaism and the influence of Jewish culture on his thinking and writing.
