'Visual Intersections' Annual Summer School on Visual Culture

10th July 2017, 09:00 to 12th July 2017, 23:55, Ustinov Room, Van Mildert College, Durham University

The second annual summer school will continue the theme of 'Visual Intersections.'

Following its inaugural event in 2016, the Centre for Visual Arts and Culture (CVAC) presents the second in a series of Summer Schools, which brings scholars together to explore the interdisciplinary nature of visual culture. We welcome proposals from those working in a wide range of disciplines, including artists, archaeologists, computer scientists, chemists, sociologists and psychologists, among others, who are committed to the study of visual phenomena.

Taking place in Durham between 10-12 of July 2017, Visual Intersections 2 invites early career researchers to exchange current ideas and approaches in the field.

The summer school provides an open and welcoming intellectual space in which postgraduate and early career researchers can explore current issues in visual culture. Invited speakers include Rachael Browning (Art Fund), Clive Cheesman (College of Arms, London) and Paul Pettitt (Durham University). Presentations will be complemented by a number of workshops. These will include sessions on visual culture and music, filmmaking, preparing a trailer about research, the making of an artist’s book and publishing with images. The event will also include a chance to visit Ushaw College, the Oriental Museum, and the exhibitions at Palace Green Library, in addition to a drinks reception.

A booking form for interested attendees is attached. This must please be submitted no later than Monday 3rd July 2017.
