ANNOUNCING - IPC Panoramic and Immersive Media Studies (PIMS) Yearbook v.1, 2024

Saturday, 14 October 2023

The Panoramic and Immersive Media Studies Yearbook (PIMS Yearbook) invites contributions for publication consideration in its inaugural yearbook.
Contributions are due 03 December 2023

The PIMS Yearbook is the annual yearbook of the International Panorama Council (IPC, Switzerland), published by De Gruyter (DG, Germany). It surveys the historical and contemporary landscape of panoramic and immersive media. This interdisciplinary field includes—but is not limited to—optical and haptic devices; 360-degree paintings; long-form paintings, photography, and prints; dioramas; museum displays; games; gardens; literature; maps; music; printed matter; still and moving images; virtual and augmented reality; and theatrical productions. Whereas the notion of the panoramic describes extensive, expansive and/or all-embracing vistas, immersion refers to porous interfaces between representation and the real, observer and observed, nature and culture, and past, present, and future. Together, the concepts of panorama and immersion have catalyzed time- and space-bending strategies for creating, experiencing, and transforming culture, ideas, and built and social space across the arc of human history.

The IPC is an international organization of panorama specialists committed to supporting the heritage and conservation of extant nineteenth and early-twentieth-century panoramas, and promoting awareness of the medium’s history, derivative forms, and contemporary iterations. As a non-government and not-for-profit association subject to Swiss law, the IPC is active in the fields of panorama research, restoration, financing, management, exhibition, and marketing. The PIMS Yearbook succeeds the International Panorama Council Journal (IPCJ), a selected proceedings of the annual conferences of the IPC.

This open call invites scholarly, creative, and practical contributions in seven areas including scholarly essays (subject to double-blind peer review); visual and creative essays; restoration, management, and field reports; opinion pieces; IPC conference reports & papers (this section is open only to IPC conference presenters; papers are subject to single-blind peer review); reviews; and reprints. We welcome contributions from IPC members and non-members alike. The PIMS Yearbook is managed by a team of three Executive Editors and six to ten Section Editors. In addition, each annual issue assembles a team of one to four Invited Guest Editors. Section details appear below.

The PIMS Yearbook will be published in print and digital formats. The print version will include a limited number of color illustrations.
