VRN 2019 Call for residents, visual presentations and papers

The Visual Research Network would like to announce a call for papers, mixed media presentations and residency participants for our 2nd International Residency Conference:


The Residency: 29th August to 3rd September in the Peak District

The Conference: 5th and 6th September 2019 at the Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology, University of Manchester

The organizers invite theoretical, experimental, sensorial, and methodological contributions that cover themes including, but not limited to:

  • Individual expressions of perception, emotion, and identity

  • Cultural representations, memories, imaginings, and visions

  • Sociospatial encounters and understandings between different people and places

  • The politics and ethics of representation in visual research

  • The dynamic power relations at play in the construction and dissemination of images

Film, photography, performance, cartoons, sound, drawings, and any other sensory materials produced through critical, creative or reflexive processes in practice-as-research or ethnography are welcome.


The residency conference is open to social researchers with strong audio-visual projects.

Residency: 1) participants will present audio-visual projects that are work-in-progress; 2) participants will have concrete plans for developing these projects during the residency; 3) participants will be ready to collaborate with other attendees in an innovative and creative, yet professional and technically proficient manner, to create a collective project to be exhibited during the conference.

Conference: 1) participants will present finished work relevant to the conference topic; 2) the presentation will be centred around a strong audio-visual component.


Please submit your abstracts for the residency and/or conference at www.visualresearchnetwork.co.uk by 15th June 2019. For full submission details, requirements, and details of the event, please see the attached documents.

Any queries can be addressed to visualresearchnet@gmail.com.

Do feel free to circulate.

The event is free of charge (UK/EU/International) and is funded by the Department of Social Anthropology, University of Manchester; the Arts and Humanities Research Councils North West Consortium Doctoral Training Partnership; the Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology, University of Manchester; Digital Humanities; and Methods@Manchester.

Unfortunately we are unable to cover the cost of return travel to Manchester.

Kind Regards,

Ally, Clara, Eugenio, Ian, Paloma, Eduard, Alex, Jess, Ben, Lana, Anna, Amber and Stefania
