The International Visual Sociology Association (IVSA) is launching an open-ended selection procedure to create a network of regional workshops or discussion groups that will become an arena for exchanging thoughts and ideas on research ethics in visual studies, which will ideally set the path toward a revised Code of Research Ethics, originally drawn up in 2009.
On behalf of the IVSA, I would like to thank everyone who stood for a position in our recent elections to the IVSA Board. Although not everyone could be successful, we very much appreciate the commitment that members have shown towards the work of the IVSA. We also want to thank all our members who took the time to vote.
We can now reveal the results of the vote.
