Call For Papers

We invite papers from graduate students and emerging scholars that address the ways in which visual culture, the built environment, and electronic media affect and inform our perceptions of collective memory and/or identities. This symposium is devoted to a consideration of the role that popular visual culture plays in shaping critical discourse with the aim of better understanding the world around us.
For example, what role do monuments play in forming public memory around specific historical events? How do adaptations of film, comics, and other forms of popular art address classic themes, such as myth? As many popular artforms are now available digitally, how do professional and amateur artists respond?

Please send abstracts of no more than 250-word abstract to Lucinda Bennett (lbennett@mica.edu) by March 1 for consideration.
