The HRC is now accepting applications for the 2014 Visiting Fellowship Program. These fellowships are open to everyone who meets the eligibility criteria.
Fellows are invited to be part of the 2014 Theme, Now Showing: Cultures, Judgements and Research on the Digital Screen.
Our cultures are awash in spectacular visual display. From the first exhibition of the cinematograph in 1895 to the web, video games and the iPhone, a succession of screens has been the site for the creation, reproduction and transmission of meaning and emotion, and a key medium for the contestation of power. These media have been imbricated in profound global cultural change, new ways of imagining and understanding human society, and a dramatic reconsideration of the ways in which knowledge is, and can be, constituted.
Images continue to explode across our screens, engaging multiple audiences, made by new kinds of producers, animating new imaginaries and normative structures, enabling new surveillance techniques, and being ‘put to work’ in innovative ways. The multiple and contradictory effects of these developments are evident across the globe, yet their implications are only beginning to be grasped. What visions of the human are being produced and enacted? How have new approaches to visual knowledge influenced existing disciplines and altered the intellectual landscape of public and academic life?
Deadline: Tuesday, 31st March 2013.
