Recognition of Leonardo’s Outstanding Peer Reviewers

By Erica Hruby

As a result of more than 50 years of publishing work on the cutting edge, Leonardo has become the leading international peer-reviewed journal on the use of contemporary science and technology in the arts and music and, increasingly, the application and influence of the arts, design and humanities on science and technology. 

Constructive peer reviews are critical to Leonardo’s publication process. Leonardo relies on its expert peer reviewers to address work across disciplines with academic rigor and a sympathetic intelligence that provides our authors with insights that allow them to present their work as strongly and clearly as possible.

In 2017 we commenced a quarterly recognition of exceptional peer reviewers in our network. This month we extend our gratitude and congratulations to the following for their in-depth and deeply constructive feedback on papers under consideration for publication.

Heather Barnett
Heather Barnett is an artist, researcher and educator working with natural phenomena and complex systems. Working with live organisms, imaging technologies and playful pedagogies, her work explores how we observe, influence and understand multi-species ecosystems. Recent work centers around nonhuman intelligence, collective behavior and distributed knowledge systems.

Janina Hoth
Janina Hoth is writing her PhD on collaborative practices and collective aesthetics in Digital Art at the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong (Hong Kong Fellowship Scheme Scholarship). She worked as researcher and lecturer at the Department for Image Science at Danube University Krems. 

Juan Parra
Founder of The Electronic Hammer, a Computer and Percussion trio and Wiregriot (voice & electronics), he collaborates regularly with Ensemble KLANG (NL) and Hermes (BE), among many others. Since 2009 Parra is a fellow researcher at the Orpheus Institute (Ghent, BE), focused on performance practice in Computer Music.

Devon Schiller
Devon Schiller is a cultural semiotician and media historian. His scholarship centers on the facial expression of emotion, and how methods of experimentation as well as modes of visualization inform models of the face in society, with a focus on biometric art that uses facial recognition and the semiotic temporalities of facial behavior.
