IVSA 2015 Annual Conference WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET: Old and New Ways of Seeing Society

The International Visual Sociology Association 2015 Annual Conference will take place June 25-27, 2015 at the Cultural Foundation of Tinos, located in the city ofChora of Tinos island,Greece. The Conference will be hosted by the Department of Communication, Media and Culture –PanteionUniversity.


Theme: What You See Is What You Get: Old and New Ways of Seeing Society

The theme “What You See Is What You Get: Old and New Ways of Seeing Society”  stands for the idea of innovation gone obsolete: the computer interface is not just a new way of seeing, but also a signifier of the visual turn at large. The much-advertised feature of visually compelling software is now a commonplace feature gone unnoticed – unseen.

At the crossroads between ways of seeing, tradition and innovation are both revered by visual researchers. Yet, today’s innovation may prove next week’s old news. Umberto Eco’s aphorism about the “theory of next Thursday” is the story of modern (and postmodern) visuality, as it flees between forms. New visual forms prove to be the test bed for methodologies. While subjects like mobile visual cultures, intermediated visualities, computer vision, etc. demand scientific attention, visual researchers strive to respond renovating their methodologies.

Submission

The 2015 International Visual Sociology Association conference is inviting scholars, artists, independent researchers, and other visual professionals to submit proposals for papers to be part of our annual meeting.

Submitted papers may address the conference theme directly. We also invite papers that raise a wide range of questions regarding visual methods, theory, and content in visual sociology and related disciplines.

To submit a paper for consideration, fill out the Abstract Submission Form (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ivsa2015) by 15 January 2015.

All presenters will receive a notification regarding acceptance by 15 February 2015.

Registration to the conference must be done by April 1st, 2015
