CFP: 21st century photography: art, philosophy, techniques

Raven_NYC-8591London | 5-6 June 2015
This trans-disciplinary conference aims to explore a series of themes  that emerge from the understanding of contemporary photography as the basic unit of visual communication of the age of technology: online, off-line and between the lines. The aim is to bridge the gap between aesthetic, philosophical and technological approaches to the photographic image and to prompt participants from different backgrounds (fine art, critical theory, philosophy, software/hardware) to engage with each other and to open new avenues for the critical interrogation of the roles of images in contemporary culture. 500-word abstracts for 20-minute presentations should be sent to Dr Daniel Rubinstein at photoconference@csm.arts.ac.uk by 10/03/2015. Selected conference papers will be published in a special issue of the journal Philosophy of Photography. Conference blog: https://photoconference2015.wordpress.com
