As the new term begins to take shape, I’m pleased to announce that the Photography Research Group (PRG) have sprung into action with their first event of the year.
The 2nd International Workshop on Visual Methods will be a one-day symposium/workshop premised upon building relationships between visually orientated research and the social sciences. The workshop will open with two keynote speakers followed by a presentation from the Vice President of the International Sociological Association’s Visual Sociology Group. In the afternoon, the workshop will turn its attention to the wider doctoral community, spotlighting some of the most exciting scholarship undertaken at a PhD level, internationally.
The event will host speakers from a range of locations and institutions including the UK, USA, Germany, Israel and Russia, with the event promising to to be a great platform upon which to promote and exchange knowledge and ideas. Over the course of coming weeks we’ll publish speaker profiles and begin to unpick some of the themes that the event will address.
In the meantime keep an eye on the dedicated webspace, found in the hyperlink above which, includes the registration link, abstracts, speaker bio’s and much more.
