The conference Visual Methodologies: A Postdiscipline of Inclusions? will be held in the historic city of Neuchtâel, Switzerland, from the 19th to the 21st June 2014. This event will also incorporate a PhD workshop on the application of visual research method. Selected papers will be published in a peer reviewed special issue of the journal Visual Methodologies.
This conference will bring together scholars from a diversity of fields of enquiry and practice(s) to consider the trajectories of Visual Methods in 21st century knowledge creation. The conference aims to examine, explore and debate emerging issues associated with visual research methods in a critical yet supportive environment. This call for papers seeks work that will connect with recent developments in researching the visual (in its broadest sense). We encourage a wide range of participants to share their perspectives on Visual Methodologies in order to advance productive dialogue in visual studies and beyond. The conference will include (but is not limited to) paper presentations in themed sessions, poster presentations, video presentations and creative arts presentations. We also welcome proposals for pre-constituted panels.
