ON NOT LOOKING: Essays on Images and Viewers

updated: 
Thursday, October 8, 2009 - 9:29am
full name / name of organization: 
Frances Guerin, Ruhr University, Bochum
contact email: 

Submissions are invited for an edited book with the working title On Not Looking:
Essays on Images and Viewers. Contemporary experience presents us with a
contradiction:  while we are at a historical moment when images have never been so
readily available and circulated, we increasingly "don't look" at images. The
collection of essays will explore the myriad ways that not looking at images — as
opposed to not seeing — is manifest in our burgeoning image culture today.
Contributions are sought that address practices and representations of "not looking,"
"turning away," and other manifestations of physical and mental distraction from
material images.
