16th Sep 2015 – 18th Sep 2015
The International Visual Methods Steering Group are pleased to announce that the next conference will be hosted by the University of Brighton in September 2015. The University of Brighton offers a unique context for the conference, as it brings long-standing traditions of visual arts practice into a dynamic relationship with critical research and scholarship. We believe this will be a productive and intellectually expansive environment in which to extend the visual methods debate within and beyond the academy.
We are very pleased to announce two confirmed keynote speakers: Professor Gillian Rose, Professor of Cultural Geography, Open University and Joe Lambert, Executive Director of the Center for Digital Storytelling.
Rose G (2012) Visual Methodologies: An Introduction to Interpreting Visual Materials, third edition, Sage.
Lambert J (2013) Digital Storytelling: Capturing Lives, Creating Community, fourth edition, Routledge.
Fourth International Visual Methods Conference
The University of Brighton is delighted to host the Fourth International Visual Methods Conference. We invite you to help build on the foundations laid down in the Visual Methods series so far. This event will deepen and extend the exchange of ideas and approaches across disciplines and between visual research and visual practices. The conference will include a combination of keynote presentations, panels and papers, alongside workshops, screenings and exhibitions.
We welcomed proposals exploring these areas:
· Visual Methods and Research Design
· Approaches to analyzing visual data
· Data visualisation
· Researcher created visual data
· Arts based visual research methods
· Visual ethics
· Visual culture and visual methods
· Participatory visual methods
The core of our programme is built on three open strands designed to capture strong proposals:
· Narrative and Visual Methods
· Exploring Digital Visual Methodologies
· Critical Perspectives on Visual Methodologies
We will supplement this with two focused strands engaging directly with local research interests within the University of Brighton. The first is on Digital Storytelling: Form and Practice where the University has a range of research interests and a second exploring the visual navigation and articulation of place.
We invited scholars and other visual practitioners to submit proposals for panels, papers or other types of contributions in one of the conference themes.
PLEASE NOTE: THE CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS IS NOW CLOSED.
THE CONFERENCE PROGRAMME WILL BE PUBLISHED SHORTLY.
Panel organisers and presenters of selected papers must register for the conference by 31st May 2015.
Registration is now open; the early bird rates will end on 31st May and registration will close on 9th September.
