New Website for InVisible Culture: An Electronic Journal of Visual Culture
This journal is dedicated to explorations of the material and political dimensions of cultural practices: the means by which cultural objects and communities are produced, the historical contexts in which they emerge, and the regimes of knowledge or modes of social interaction to which they contribute.
As the title suggests, InVisible Culture problematizes the unquestioned alliance between culture and visibility, specifically visual culture and vision. Cultural practices and materials emerge not solely in the visible world, but also in the social, temporal, and theoretical relations that define the invisible. Our understanding of cultural studies, finally, maintains that culture is fugitive and is constantly renegotiated.
InVisible Culture was founded in 1998 under the editorship of Mario Caro, and has since been edited by Reni Celeste, Margot Bouman, Lucy Curzon, T’ai Smith, Catherine Zuromskis, Aviva Dove-Viebahn, Cynthia Foo, Gloria Kim, Godfre Leung, Genevieve Waller, Iskandar Zulkarnain, Zainab Saleh, and Ryan Conrath.
InVisible Culture was made possible through the generous support of the Office of the University of Rochester Provost, Charles E. Phelps and is maintained with support from the Graduate Program in Visual and Cultural Studies.
