The 2009 World Picture Conference

October 23-24, 2009
Oklahoma State University
Stillwater, Oklahoma


Keynote Speakers:

Edward Branigan (University of California, Santa Barbara)
Alexander García Düttmann (Goldsmiths College)

We believe the question of style is in need of new thinking, across media, disciplines and modes of thought. We hope, therefore, to receive abstracts that reflect or extend out of any number of approaches to the question of style (theoretical, philosophical, historical, formal, generic, etc.). Our conference (like our journal) is inflected by a strong interest in the intersection of political and aesthetic questions concerning cinema, visual art, and visual theory, but we encourage the submission of abstracts that do not necessarily occupy themselves with the cinema and/or the visual.

Proposals (250 words), including a brief bio, should be sent to Brian Price at brian.price@okstate.edu by June 1.


World Picture is edited by Brian Price, Meghan Sutherland and John David Rhodes. It is devoted to philosophical and theoretical inquiry, with a strong emphasis on the visual, the cinematic, the televisual, and contemporary art. It appears twice annually and is online and open access.
