IVSA Board Member,
I love the debate that ensues when someone tells me, ‘you can’t read a photograph’. Knowing that the body of research continues to grow among visualistas considering the various aspects of all things visual heartens me and gives me backing for my debates.
It’s also just one of the compelling reasons I have stayed involved with IVSA, and agreed to a leadership role. Each year, the range of topics at the annual conferences continues to intrigue me. With every issue of Visual Studies I become better informed about the quality of our scholars. The many academic pursuits of our members—from books to websites to films to photo essays—reflect how visuals continue to reflect societal/cultural meaning. It is my profound desire to spend the rest of my career and beyond thinking about talking about and taking photographs.
