The fading image: visual culture and the transformation of memory - a symposium to be held May 16-17, 2003 at the Centre for the Study of Historical Consciousness, University of British Columbia.
Researchers, theorists and community practitioners of memory are invited to reflect on and map out how changes in visual culture have impacted on the way we understand memory - in past practices, present debates, and policy issues for the future. This includes (but is not limited to) the transmission of knowledge through: images (including creation, deployment and reception); textual imagery; and visual symbols as interpreted by institutions, states, communities, and individuals.
Proposed papers should explore one of the following themes in relation to visual culture and the transformation of memory:
Nation and Community
Technology and Science
Papers that develop the interconnections between issues of race, class, gender, ability, and sexuality within the chosen theme are particularly welcome.
We welcome papers from academics, graduate students, public historians, community researchers, media professionals, educators, museum professionals, and independent researchers.
Please see our website for detailed submission information.
Proposal deadline: February 28, 2003
