IVSA 2019 Annual Conference
Saratoga Springs, New York from June 20-22, 2019
Visual Imperatives/Visual Uncertainties
The IVSA is pleased to announce that its 37th annual conference will be held at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York from June 20-22, 2019.
The 2019 International Visual Sociology Association (IVSA) conference will include, photo essays, posters, and films that explore the theme “Visual Imperatives and Visual Uncertainties.” What should be attended to in visual studies of society, what can be dismissed or discounted, and what lies in-between? Visual sociology, and scholarly visual studies generally, may be understood as restlessly situated between modernist notions embracing science and post-modernist criticisms of that outlook. Can that tension be settled? Should we even try to do so?
Registration for the conference is now open!. Note: you have to be a member of the IVSA to register.
IVSA Conference attendees may find the last leg of their journey to be a bit complicated. However, we have prepared this guide to get you to the conference.
