The Boston University graduate students have organized one of the longest running symposia expressly for the work of young, emerging scholars. The event takes place each spring, and is cosponsored and hosted by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Our Call for Papers, held annually in the fall, aims to attract interdisciplinary participation. We seek to provide a forum for all scholars still in graduate school with topics and interests related to visual culture, including art history, film and media studies, cultural studies, anthropology, and all related fields.
