“Opacity” - Issue 22
For its twenty-second issue, InVisible Culture: An Electronic Journal for Visual Culture invites scholarly articles and creative works that address the multiple meanings of opacity.
Explicitly or implicitly, the Euro-American path to modernity has long been taken as a standard model, indeed as a definition of modernity in general. Individualization, the rule of law, technologisation, social differentiation, and secularization were seen as its inevitable manifestations. Regions of the world falling short of this “package” have been considered as in need of development by colonial rule or other forms of tutelage.
Keynote Speakers: Dr. Andrew Davies (University of Liverpool) and Dr. Matt Houlbrook (University of Birmingham)
