Images as Agents in Digital Public Spheres: 3rd International Workshop on Visual Research for Doctoral Students
Welcome to the Third International Workshop on Visual Research. Organized by Prof. Anna Schober and her team (Dr. des. Sebastian Mühl and Mag. Erec Gellautz) from the Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt, Department for Cultural Analysis, Division of Visual Culture, in cooperation with the International Sociological Association’s Visual Sociology Research Committee (RC57) (ISA-RC57)
The workshop addresses students interested in conducting empirical and theoretical research in the fields of visual sociology and visual culture studies, digital media and contemporary public spheres.
Subsequent to the second workshop at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), UK, in 2017, which focused on the politics of visibility, this event will focus on questions concerned with visual practices in digital public spheres. A second focus is on methods suited to bridging sociological and visual research in the digital age. The workshop calls for interdisciplinary approaches in the field of cultural, social and media sciences.
Possible themes for presentation: political and social agency of (moving) images in the digital age, social practices related to contemporary image production, global-local changes and transculturality connected to contemporary media worlds, cultural und economic aspects of popular image production, etc. (read more for full list).
