The SVA welcomes paper and poster session proposals for consideration at this year’s Annual Meeting in San Francisco (November 14-18, 2012). The theme for the meeting is “Borders and Crossings,” which provides a rich context for exploring the innovative and exciting work conducted under the broad rubric of visual anthropology. Last year, SVA sponsored sessions explored such diverse topics as public art, visual ethics, photography of the unsettling, sensing culture, visualizing history, aesthetic production, digital storytelling and visualizing the technological disjoint in communities.
For the 2012 Annual Meeting, the SVA programming committee consists of:
Both Jennifer and Jonathan are more than happy to work with you on your paper, poster, or roundtable sessions - please be in touch early, and as often as necessary, with us! We’re happy to assist session organizers with the structuring of their proposals. The SVA encourages innovative formats, including poster sessions, extended screening of visual materials, and fostering more dynamic discussion periods.
