2021 SVA Visual Research Conference
The Society for Visual Anthropology - Visual Research Conference will take place online November 11-13, 2021 the week before the American Anthropological Association meeting. An informal online meet and greet will take place Thursday night and interactive presentations will be scheduled Thursday and Friday late afternoons-early evenings and Saturday morning. This schedule provides flexibility in attendance and time between presentations to attend to work and to meet informally with other participants.
The Visual Research Conference provides an opportunity for professionals and students to dialogue about visually engaged works-in-progress. There are no specific themes to follow, though we are most interested in new ideas and projects under development in the study of visual signification, visual communication, and visual forms of representation, and/or utilizing visual media (photo, film, web, polymedia, intermedia, multimodal media). Forty-minute time slots allow for substantive presentations that include viewing of visual material as well as ample give-and-take with an actively participating audience. Further discussion takes place after presentations for networking and exchange of ideas.
Members and non-members of the American Anthropological Association and Society for Visual Anthropology are welcome and there is no charge to attend. This is a productive way to meet and interact with others who do anthropological and anthropologically-related visual research.
Abstracts of approximately 250 words can be submitted through 11:59pm, Hawai'i Time, May 23, 2021 by clicking on the Visual Research Conference submission form link at http://societyforvisualanthropology.org/visual-research-conference/
