Future Anterior – Photography and Preservation

Jorge Otero-Pailos, Founder and Editor
Iñaki Bergera, Guest Co-Editor

Deadline for submission: July 15, 2013.
How can photography help rethink received understandings of preservation, and vice versa? Future Anterior will dedicate a special issue to probing the ramifications of new theories of photography within preservation and testing the ways in which preservation ideas, practices and desires may be transforming how photography is conceived. Papers should not only present rigorous historical research but also outline novel theoretical and critical analyses. Future Anterior invites papers from scholars in preservation and its allied fields that explore any aspect of this special issue’s theme of “Photography and Preservation”. For further manuscript guidelines, please visit. Acceptance or rejection of submissions is at the discretion of the editors. Please do not send original materials, as submissions will not be returned. Please mail all submissions to:
