Call for Submissions: Mirror of Race

Mirror of Race ( is seeking submissions of artwork and essays for online publication.

The goal of MoR is to explore ideas about race in the United States through personal and critical reflections on early photography. The editorial board encourages submissions from artists, writers, educators, curators, and scholars that engage with the photographs in the MoR online exhibition, that situate images within their historical contexts, and that can inspire visitors to the website to reexamine their own ways of seeing race. MoR aims to address the general public as well as instructors and students at all educational levels.

Submissions to MoR are peer reviewed by members of the editorial board and external readers. A list of suggested formats and topics can be found on the MoR website. Essays should adhere to the standards of excellence in the author’s field, but they should be written in accessible language for the MoR’s broad audience. They may address any aspect of race, including contemporary topics, but must engage in some way with the images in the MoR online exhibition. Artwork may include original photographs, paintings, poetry, storytelling, and other creative forms that can be exhibited online. Artists should provide a narrative explaining the relationship between their work and the images and themes featured on the MoR website.
