Debating Visual Knowledge (Oct 2014, Pittsburgh USA)

Dates: 3-5 October 2014: Debating Visual Knowledge
Location: Pittsburgh, PA, University of Pittsburgh
Contact: debatingvisualknowledge@gmail.com
Deadline for submissions: 11 April 2014

A symposium organized by graduate students in Information Science and History of Art and Architecture at the University of Pittsburgh.

Visual knowledge and visual literacy have become pressing concerns across a variety of academic disciplines and areas of creative production. These concerns are shaped by the fluid definitions of “visual knowledge” and the multiple ways in which it manifests. Many forms of visual knowledge have capabilities that are not shared by language. This knowledge is produced, mediated, and distributed by a number of different objects, tools, media, and technologies. This symposium seeks to broaden understandings of intellectual and creative work by interrogating the theorization, production, use, and historicization of visual knowledge. We envision the event as an exploratory lab, comprising scholarly and creative projects that engage with these questions.

Special Issue of “The Poster:” the visual rhetorics of command and control (Oct 2011)

Deadline for submissions: 14 Oct 2011
Website: www.tinyurl.com/theposterjournal

This call’s theme:
Visual rhetorics are by definition in the business of persuasion: in both private and public spheres, such rhetorics attempt to change the behaviours of both individuals and groups. From the “Stop” sign at the end of our street, through the visual and verbal warnings on packs of cigarettes, to the recruitment posters of our armed forces, common sense instruction blends into health-expert authority insistence and then into state invitations to die for one’s country. In this first special issue of The Poster, we invite contributions on the many and different ways in which visual rhetoric intends and is used to inform, instruct, persuade and control our lives.
