Visual Culture in Crisis: Britain, c.1800-Present
Type: Calls For Papers [View all]
Posted by: University of York
Taking its cue from Hardt and Negri’s location of ‘crisis’ as central to European modernity, this conference seeks to explore how visual cultures in Britain during the 19th and 20th centuries have simultaneously responded to – and emerged from – the successive crises that have been deemed to constitute the country’s (post)colonial modernity. Among other things, crisis in visual culture might signify avantgarde break-through, resistance in the form of protest, or engagement with the fraught and contingent nature of personal and political identities within the inter-state and inter-subjective networks that have emerged in conjunction with imperialism and economic globalisation.
