What's at Stake?: Community and Visual Culture [announcement]

by Jacque Donaldson

“Community” is a potent, yet overused word, meaning dramatically different things to different people. Similarly, it can be hard to see the extent to which visual culture—the media, images, art, and memes around us—is the way we know our “communities,” and how that visual work might play a creative and productive role in social change.

 

Broadcasting health and disease. Bodies, markets and television, 1950s-1980s [announcement]

by Tricia Close-Koenig

Throughout the age of television health and body-related subjects have been presented and diffused into the public sphere via a multitude of forms, ranging from short films in health education programmes to school television, from professional training to TV ads, from documentary and reality TV shows to TV news, but also as complementary VHS and similar video formats circulating in private and public spheres.

Before Representation: The Camera as Actor, edited volume seeking contributions [announcement]

by Amy Cox Hall

The photograph as a byproduct of intention does not begin with its publication. Although photographs are uniquely powerful because of their reproducibility, the specific camera equipment and its use also needs to be considered for a fuller understanding of the image. Research that focuses on camera technology will help us understand how and in what ways imaging technology impacts and forms the representation out of which we make knowledge, base our judgments, and ultimately act.

by Laura Hatry

One of the central figures in contemporary Chilean film, director Pablo Larraín (b. 1976), presents a harsh portrait of his country’s current reality and of its tortured history in a direct, sometimes surprising, and often controversial oeuvre, never demurring in the face of violence or painful truths about the past.
