        Subject: 4S Open Panel on templates, formats and models

Please consider sending your work to our 4S Open Panel on templates,
formats and models.  Description and link below!

Templates / Plantillas / Modelos:

This panel explores the politics and poetics of templates. Like formats,
protocols, and standards, templates can be found in nearly all domains
of knowledge and practice, imposing uniformity, reducing complexity, and
allowing for the proliferation of communicative and material forms.
Templates are crucial to organization and work across a range of
professions, including architecture, publishing, genetic engineering,
and nursing. Accordingly, templates vary in degree of elaboration,
institutionalization, visibility, and consequence. They surface in
struggles over legitimacy, inclusion, and authenticity, if only to
recede again into the technological unconscious. Templates establish
norms of consistency and deviation, configuring our classifications and
evaluations, our sense of sameness and difference, self and other.

This panel solicits proposals in English, Spanish or Portuguese that
grapple with templates across contexts and from a range of interpretive
perspectives. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

   *   Templates as organizational, managerial, or bureaucratic technologies
   *   The relationship between templates and other aesthetic
classifications (e.g., genre or style) in film, architecture, music,
literature, visual arts, etc.
   *   “Template” as rhetorical device
   *   Templates as representations of inequality
   *   The use of templates in projects of carcerality and/or state violence
   *   The role of templates in the history of computing
   *   Templates in urban governance and planning
   *   Templates as ludic and improvisational forms
   *   Templates in finance, economics, or marketing
   *   Templates in academic knowledge production, scientific discovery,
or publishing

Across these different topics, we are particularly interested in
perspectives and analysis that draw from the Global South and/or BIPOC
knowledge practices.
