Interested in writing for AREA? Submit proposals for pieces on to AREA Editors (areaeditors (at) gmail (dot) com) by June 1st. Proposals should focus on the issue's central questions: What infrastructures and institutions from the past do we need to remember, what institutions and infrastructures from the present do we need to maintain or rethink, and how can we or are we critically creating the new ones to support our work? Earlier proposals will be considered on a rolling basis for earlier online publication.
