Queen’s University Graduate Visual Culture Association conference

APPEL À COMMUNICATION – 9th annual Context and Meaning XIX: Hindsight 20/20 Graduate Student Conference, Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario, Friday, January 24th to Saturday, January 25th, 2020. Deadline to submit an abstract Friday, November 22nd, 2019.

We are seeking proposals for research papers, artworks, and/or participatory projects that address this year’s theme, Hindsight 20/20. The conference will provide an inclusive forum that facilitates multi-disciplinary academic discussion on visual material culture while encompassing an abundant range of topics. Hindsight 20/20 reflects on our engagement with the past and our visions for the future. This conference asks, how do contextualized perspectives influence our understanding of non-linear ways of knowing, and cultural production/output?  

We encourage applications from graduate students working in Art History, Art Conservation, Studio Art, Digital Humanities, Cultural Studies, Museum Studies, Religious Studies, Gender Studies, as well as students from other Humanities fields whose research responds to this year’s theme. This conference is open to both historical and contemporary topics. Submissions are welcome from current graduate students, as well as those who have completed their graduate studies within the last year. We seek to assemble a diverse group of scholars in order to foster interdisciplinary discussions. Presenters will be allotted 20 minutes to deliver their ideas, followed by a 10-minute discussion period. 

If you are interested in participating in Context and Meaning XIX, please email an abstract of no more than 300 words with the title of your paper, along with a separate document that includes a 250-word bio, to gvca@queensu.ca.
