Visual Culture

The Visual Culture Working Group broadly considers the predominance of visuality: its particular forms, objects, histories, audiences and affective responses, and spaces of seeing as well as its theoretical and material interventions into structures of domination, oppression, and invisibility.  We ask not only about the ‘scopic regimes’ of seeing, but also about the development of particular visual technologies over time and how they have shaped and been shaped by spectatorial engagement. More theoretically, we welcome members that consider the contested terrain of the field of visual culture, its limitations and possibilities.
