Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to the international conference "Making Pictures Talk" which will take place on October 6 and 7, 2022. The conference is organised by InVisu (INHA/CNRS) and will take place at the Institut National d'Histoire de l'Art - INHA, Salle Vasari (2 rue Vivienne 75002 Paris). The conference languages are French and English. This is an in-person event and no registration required.

“Making pictures talk” or talking from and about them has become a common practice in social sciences that deserves critical examination. In the framework of this conference, people coming from several disciplines and whose practice is inscribed in the combination of photographs and narratives will revisit their case studies and explicit their ways of doing research. The intention is to compare different practices, confront them, and bring them into dialogue in order to discuss the ways in which each practitioner uses images and testimonies through the prism of his or her disciplinary and analytical perspectives.

Best regards,
