- VCS Graduate Conference
- A conference is organized periodically by students in the Program in Visual and
Cultural Studies. The conference brings together graduate students
from a variety of fields, such as film studies, museum studies,
art history, and cultural anthropology, in accordance with the interdisciplinary
approach of the Program. Participants come from institutions in
the United States, Canada and abroad, thus providing an opportunity
for intellectual exchange and contact with diverse academic and
cultural backgrounds. Recent topics have included Interrogating
Subcultures, Subjects of Culture, and Theory and Practice.
- Invisible Culture: an Electronic Journal for Visual Studies
- The purpose of Invisible Culture, an online journal, is to provide a
forum for critical approaches to the production and analysis of
cultural objects. The journal features essays and art projects that
address contemporary issues within visual studies. In an effort
to encourage lively discussions and debates, the publication entertains
the wide spectrum of methodological and disciplinary approaches
(including postcolonial, feminist, Marxist, psychoanalytic, queer
theories, and more) being applied to the study of visual culture.
The journal is edited by VCS graduate students and includes essays
by scholars (students and faculty) from the U.S. and abroad.
