Darren Newbury

IVSA Visual Studies Editor

I first came across IVSA in the late 1990s, when researching and writing about the history of British photography; and attended my first conference in Louisville, Kentucky. I found the interdisciplinary community of scholars represented by the organisation to be both generous and stimulating and have been involved ever since.

IVSA Board Member

I have been involved with IVSA since I attended the first Bologna meetings 1996. This was also my introduction to visually focused research. As a long time photo-enthusiast, I am both a maker and appreciator of photographs of all genres. The IVSA  offered a way to bring both my love of photography together with my academic pursuits in Cultural Sociology.

IVSA Board Member

Although I am probably much better known as a Sociologist who studies Urban Neighborhoods and much more likely to define myself as an Activist or Public Scholar, almost all of my work has been "visual" in one way or another.  I came to my first International Visual Sociology Association meeting  in 1997 at the suggestion of a member of  the American Sociological Association Urban Community Section who thought what I did was "Visual Sociology."
