RENDERING THE VISIBLE
February 11-12, 2011
The doctoral program in Moving Image Studies at Georgia State University welcomes paper proposals for a meta-disciplinary conference on the state of "the digital turn."
Keynote speakers: Vivian Sobchack and Akira Lippit
One of the most pressing questions facing studies of the image today is how to theorize visuality as more and more of the image archive is given over to the digital. This conference proposes that the notion of "rendering" might provide a useful entrée for an exploration of theoretical continuities and discontinuities in our understanding of the technologically-reproduced image, from Benjamin's "Short History of Photography" to CGI.
