If you are an institution or project that would like to propose a collaboration, we are very open to ideas. Please get in touch with Sria Chatterjee. We have a range of possibilities including but not limited to:
- opportunities for universities and organizations to sponsor part-time Research Curator Fellowships for a member of their university or organization
- co-hosting workshops, outcomes from which are later available to view on the Visualizing the Virus website
If you are teaching a course on a related topic and would like to work with us with the option of featuring student work, you must get in touch before the course begins.
Curating a cluster
If you have ideas for a cluster (themed section) that you would like to curate, with some solicited contributions and your own contribution, along with an introduction to the cluster, we are happy to discuss this further. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org with the Subject Line: ‘Inquiry about new cluster’ and we will get back to you if it is a cluster we can accommodate. In your email, be sure to include:
- a 200-word description of the cluster
- at least 5 names of potential contributors
- 5 keywords relating to your cluster
- timeline (with a proposed date by which your cluster will be ready).
If your cluster is selected for inclusion, we will be happy to work closely with you and provide technical and copyediting support.
Featuring existing work
If you would like us to feature existing work (such as published essays, scholarly articles, exhibitions, projects, or interviews), please write to email@example.com with the Subject Line: ‘Inquiry about featuring work on VV’. To feature work, we ask contributors to include a short description of what will be featured (500-800 words including extracts). We welcome photo essays, video, audio submissions and other experimental formats.
Submitting new work
We are unfortunately unable to pay for new work (essays, artworks, films) at the moment but are working towards funding that will allow us to do so in the future. If you are currently in a funded position and would like to propose new work, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org with the Subject Line: ‘Inquiry about submitting new work’. In your email, be sure to include:
- a 200-word description of the contribution
- 5 keywords
- timeline (with a proposed date by which your contribution will be ready).
Please know that we are a small team and although we would like to respond to all inquiries and contribution requests that we receive, we may be unable to do so. If you have not heard back from us in 4 weeks, feel free to follow up on your submission or enquiry.
