Call for participation
The 2018 edition of the School in Visual Sociology will be organized in Genoa by the Visual Sociology Lab together with the Faculty of Film Studies and the Global Emergent Media Lab of Concordia University (Montreal), as well as with the Contemporary Art Museum of Villa Croce (Genoa).
The school will be held in English and will develop, during five days (from June 11th to June 15th), a dialogue, alternating theoretical lectures, roundtables and speeches, in the morning, and practical workshops in the afternoon. The current edition is specifically dedicated to visual archives, their use and possible re-interpretation. Particularly, it will address a peculiar kind of historical archive, one based on visual narratives and documents concerning anti-colonial struggles and movements.
