Sputnik & Fizzle publishes lectures and other interventions in the world of ideas and praxis. We aspire to cultivate a space where academics and multimedia artists cross paths, where texts disturb comfortable formal territories, where national and linguistic boundaries are transposed via translation, and where the discourses that shape social, political, ecological, scientific, and artistic life coincide.
We are interested foremost in the confluence of the theoretical and the practical. While much of our content is solicited, we are also open to submissions. Translations are most welcome. Sputnik & Fizzle should highlight the fluidity between the humanities, arts, and sciences. We believe in the versatility of the lecture format and are committed to realizing its wealth of embodiments.

S&F publishes interdisciplinary lectures broadly within the humanities relevant to both artistic and scholarly practices.
We hold a reading period during the spring as well as solicit manuscripts from individual authors. For unsolicited submissions during our reading period, we require a one-page description of the project and up to 10 manuscript pages. We aim at responding to queries within two months.
