Call For Submissions: The Culture and Architecture of Low Riders
Scholars, designers and artists are invited to submit papers to be part
of an edited volume dealing with the culture of low riders and their
interaction with the built environment. The University Honors Program
and School of Architecture at the University of New Mexico and the
School of Architecture at Clemson University are working in conjunction
with the National Hispanic Cultural Center to produce a peer-reviewed
text and public symposium that captures the dynamic nature of low
riders within both the automotive context and in society at large.
Submissions of 2500 to 5000 words in length are invited from across the
disciplines, but a special emphasis will be given to works that are
visual in nature or include visual components (such as designs, photo-
essays and the like).
The deadline for submissions is 15 June 2005. The volume is slated for
publication in early 2006. Select authors will be invited to
participate in multi-day, public symposium on low riders during the
spring/summer of 2006 on the campus of the National Hispanic Cultural
Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
