From the Civil Rights Movement to #BlackLives Matter, images of racially motivated violence have spurred nationwide protest. Despite overwhelming photographic evidence, juries – in the case of Emmett Till, Trayvon Martin, and countless others – nonetheless failed to find the perpetrators guilty. A picture of a toddler lying face down on a beach brought worldwide attention to the Syrian refugee crisis. The initial outrage caused by the photograph quickly dissipated, and today, this ongoing global crisis has largely disappeared from the public view.

The contemporary world is undergoing a period of accelerated change which can be attributed to a number of different developments: technological advances, the ubiquity of social media and smartphones, the acceleration of global warming and the resultant environmental disasters, and major political upheavals such as Brexit and the growth of white nationalist movements across the globe. These and other changes create constantly shifting and unstable contemporary environments. In this climate of economic, political and environmental uncertainty, it is important to address the impact on and outcomes of these and other major changes in our contemporary world.
