<nettime-ann> Convergence 13.3 Open Call for Papers

(apologies for x-posting)

The process of change and renewal continues at Convergence: The International Journal of Research into New Media Technologies. Following our move to Sage publications, there have been changes to the editorial board, and we have a number of exciting proposals for guest-edited themed issues to appear over coming volumes. We expect these developments will further confirm Convergence's status as one of the preeminent scholarly journals in new media studies.

Regular readers and subscribers will know that, apart from two annual special issues, Convergence publishes two numbers a year which are open to any submissions that fall within our remit. This is an open call for papers for Volume 13, number 3, which will appear in August 2007. For this issue, papers would need to be submitted by 31st August 2006.
