February 15, 2017 | By | No Comments

2017 CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR THE JOHN COLLIER JR AWARD FOR VISUAL EXCELLENCE IN THE USE OF STILL PHOTOGRAPHY

The John Collier Jr. Award for Still Photography is awarded periodically by the Collier award committee members of the Society for Visual Anthropology (SVA) to an author or photographer whose publication, exhibit, website, or other multimedia production exemplifies the use of still photographs (both historical and contemporary) for research and communication of anthropological knowledge.  The submission must have a strong visual research perspective accompanied by high quality photographs, both technically and aesthetically and be within five years of the original publication date.

Rules for Submissions: The project must be nominated by a current member of the American Anthropology Association.   A complete submission packet consists of:

  1. A letter of nomination from the AAA member covering why the work deserves the award, as well as the name, book title or exhibit, website or multimedia production, publisher, author’s mailing address, phone and email.
  1. A letter of consent from the work’s author.
  1. Four copies of the work (if a physical copy exists). These copies should be requested by the author from the publisher to be sent directly to the committee.

Completed submission materials must be received by the deadline listed below.

Submissions cannot be nominated directly from the publisher but the copies of the work may be sent directly from the publisher to the committee. Collections of writings by multiple authors will not be considered.

The same work may be submitted a maximum of two times. The SVA Collier Award board appointed committee then reviews the submitted works to decide on its merits. Winners are announced during the SVA/AAA meetings and presented with a John Collier Jr. or Mary Collier print, courtesy of the Collier Family Collection, a certificate of recognition and award recognition stickers to place on the work.

2015 Visual Research Conference

March 14, 2015 | By | No Comments

The Visual Research Conference — held annually at the beginning of the American Anthropological Association meeting — in 2015 will take place in Denver, Colorado, November 16-18, with a no-host informal dinner on Monday evening at 7pm, and presentations and discussions all day Tuesday and until 3pm on Wednesday. The Visual Research Conference provides an opportunity for professionals and students to dialogue about visually interesting works-in-progress. 45 minute time slots allow for substantive presentations that include viewing of visual material as well as ample give-and-take with an actively participating audience. Informal discussion times in between the interactive formal presentations, plus conversations at lunch and dinner, create multiple situations for networking and exchange of ideas. Members and non-members are welcome and there is no charge to attend. This is a productive way to meet and interact with others who do anthropological and anthropologically-related research on visual signification, visual communication, and visual forms of representation.

Abstracts of approximately 250-500 words can be submitted through 11:59pm, Hawai’i Time, April 1, 2015 by clicking on the Visual Research Conference submission form link at societyforvisualanthropology.org/visual-research-conference.

PLEASE NOTE: this Visual Research Conference submission deadline on April 1 is EARLIER than the American Anthropological Association’s Annual Meeting submission deadline on April 15, so that the Visual Research Conference organizing committee has time to carefully review the submissions and invite the 2015 presenters.
