The Graduate Union of the Students of Art is pleased to announce this year’s annual graduate symposium, Out of Sight: Looking Beyond Seeing. The symposium will be held at the University of Toronto Art Centre from Thursday, January 21 to Friday, January 22, 2010. Graduate students from all disciplines are invited to submit abstracts for presentations of twenty minutes. Several exceptional papers will have the opportunity for publication in the University of Toronto Art Journal.
This year’s symposium explores visual culture through the non-visual. Papers may address memory, touch, taste, smell, hearing, intuition, and other non-visual aspects in the broadest sense. Approaches to the non-visual may include, but are not restricted to: reception and experience; creative processes; aesthetics; sight as a secondary sense; evocation of the visual through the non-visual…
Abstracts for submission should be no more than 250 words, accompanied by a short biography or CV. Submissions are due by Monday, November 30, 2009 to the symposium committee at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
