The Cyborgology Blog is seeking guest contributors from various academic disciplines. Posts might summarize current research, analyze current events, review works of art, summarize a panel discussion, criticize recent literature, or offer theoretical insights in plain language. We will edit all contributions and cannot guarantee running all submissions.
Submissions can be various lengths depending on the scope, but always should be written for a general audience. This can include everything from the more academic to the personal to fiction. Have a look at some of the most read posts by our authors to get a sense of what goes over well with our audience:
- “The Faux-Vintage Photo” & “Pinterest and Feminism” by Nathan Jurgenson
- “The Atemporality of “Ruin Porn” – Part I: The Carcass” by Sarah Wanenchak
