Visual Cultures in Southeast Europe: globalization, gender, power and resistance
Call for Paper/Panel
Visual representation has been crucial in shaping the understanding about people, cultures, resistance, class, gender, ethnicity and more. In the digital era, also called the age of social
media, and hypermediacy this has become even more evident as societies create and are confronted with images and multiplicities of representations ever more frequently. The overall visuality has economized the written text in order to be more efficient in reaching certain audiences. Visual cultures today have no place or space of origin; they are migrating globally and are understood and interpreted locally. Visual cultures, as practices and manifestations of life that are expressed through visual aspects and interpreted through individual and shared experiences, will be considered at this conference through special focus on globalization, power, gender and resistance. Therefore, “Visual cultures in SEE”, are unfolding in this tension between the local and the global.
