After three years of convening solely online, the 2023 IVSA meeting will be hosted by Multimedia University of Kenya (MMU) in Nairobi from 27-29 June. The institution began in 1948 as a telecommunication hub for the East Africa Common Services and was chartered as a public university in 2013. Situated on a serene 76 hectares in the historic Karen area of Nairobi, the main campus is adjacent to Nairobi National Park and home to a colony of baboons, mischievous monkeys, and many grazing warthogs who would love to see you there next June!
We are delighted to announce a call for self-nominations for a special 1-year position on the Executive Board of Directors of the International Visual Sociology Association (IVSA). The position’s term will begin immediately upon successful election and end on 30 June 2023.
Between September 15-18, 2022, the International Visual Sociology Association’s community will convene online for its annual conference to explore the theme “Expanding the visual field: New developments in visual scholarship, arts and activism”. As one component of the conference, IVSA and its affiliate journal, Visual Studies, is collaborating to organize the exhibition, What is an image?.
