This year’s FVA conference theme is “Beyond the Lens”
The conference will be held on April 3-4, 2014 at Temple University, Philadelphia, PA.
The Visual Anthropology Society at Temple (VAST) is pleased to announce the 2014 Futures of Visual Anthropology Conference theme: Beyond the Lens. This interdisciplinary conference will bring together research that moves beyond academic and institutional environments and enhances public scholarship through participatory methods, engaged ethnography, and interdisciplinary collaboration. We encourage innovative approaches to new media research and digital and experimental methods. Submissions may also involve explorations beyond the visual medium, such as sensory ethnography, embodiment studies, spatial analyses, and soundscapes. We welcome submissions from established scholars, graduate students, and undergraduates, as well as community organizers and professionals in a broad range of fields.
The 2014 FVA conference will also feature a Student Film Festival with awards presented to the best super-short, short, and feature-length films.
Project formats may include (but are not limited to): Film, Photography, Visual and Performance Art, Posters, and Paper Presentations.
The deadline for submissions is February 3, 2014.
