Language hosting?
From being an artist, a refugee, a migrant, a tourist or a nomad, through to translation processes,
politics and socio-cultural emancipatory struggles, and all way to contemporary technologies and
academic life - the question from language hosting seems to come up.

The elaborated version of this call and linked ideas is on:

Papers please?
Language hosting and related ideas. 
The kind of ideas we are looking for?
Examples from the introduction text: 
Sensations of hosting, hosting and introductions, philosophy of hosting, contemporary political and
social questions (eg Alt-Right, Internet, migration, and occupation).

However there are more.
Hosting and the language of artworlds.
Hosting language and time.
The rhythms of hosting languages.
The language of hosting - senses of ownership and its domains.
Hosting language and hospitality. eg cultural perceptions of being hospitable, etc.
Hosting language as a medium. How hosting verbal language might be different from a visual, or
other sensory one.
The language of hosting languages. (..and before you let this sound all too academic and meta,
please consider how facebook presents and indeed guards the way they decide which language to host.
eg - 
https://www.theguardian.com/news/gallery/2017/may/22/sex-and-nudity-in-art-see-facebooks-rules )

Indeed, if your contribution is not in a verbal way, let’s find out how this publication can host
your content?

Cheers, have fun and all the best!
