Works 

In Progress

A GEM Lab periodical of new research

Artboard 2 - Mid.png

In Progress is an open-access periodical showcasing new works from GEM Lab researchers and collaborators. It aims to foster timely discussions around emerging media, past and present, with a particular focus on broadening conceptions of global, digital, and public culture beyond dominant North Atlantic contexts and epistemologies. The platform grows out of the GEM Lab’s Works-in-Progress series, started in 2017, a forum for experimental research methods.

In Progress publishes shortform (~1500 words) critical essays, speculative writing, and photo/video works in ten installments each year. We welcome submissions from a wide range of fields at the intersection of global and emergent media and aim to highlight the work of both graduate students and established scholars from the Montréal community and beyond.

To submit a proposal please send a short abstract and bio to our editors at: gem.lab.info@gmail.com. We are now soliciting our 2023 lineup.
