“The definition of visual culture changes all the time,” says Nicholas Mirzoeff, a professor in Steinhardt’s Department of Media, Culture, and Communication. “It has no fixed object of study, but it is interested in the interplays between and among visual media and the work of visualizing.”
Mirzoeff, the author of An Introduction to Visual Culture, will be among fifty international scholars, artists, filmmakers, and new media practitioners taking part in The International Association for Visual Culture’s three-day biennial conference at NYU.
“Now! Visual Culture,” aims to showcase a broad and diverse range of visual culture practice throughout the world. A panel will be devoted to Scalar, a platform designed to allow authors to write long-form scholarship online.
