CFP: Invisible Culture: The Cultural Visualization of Hurricane Katrina (Deadline 10/15/09; journal issue)
Call for Papers Date:
We are seeking submissions for the peer reviewed journal, Invisible Culture, that that consider visual representations of Hurricane Katrina in ways unimaginable at earlier points in the intersection between visual studies and cultural studies. We are interested in submissions that consider the response to hurricane Katrina in light of the intensification of mass media, both in terms of the sheer quantity of media outlets and in the reach of its dissemination, which has given rise to a new experience of historical time and geographic proximity, in which we experience historical events through media
representations almost immediately as they happen and regardless of where they occur.
Please see the website for a full CFP. Send inquiries and completed papers (MLA style) of 2,500 - 5,000 words to Nicola Mann (nmann2[at]mail[dot]rochester[dot]edu) and Victoria Pass (vpass[at]mail[dot]rochester[dot]edu) by October 15, 2009.
