> Call for Papers: "The Changing Complexion of Theory in Visual Studies"
> Edited by Roger Rothman and Ian Verstegen
> “Theory” is once again experiencing tectonic shifts. Until recently,
> progressive work on the visual accepted the claims of structuralism
> and deconstruction regarding the primacy of epistemology over
> metaphysics, the constructedness of knowledge over its self-givenness,
> and a general antipathy toward naturalistic explanation. While no
> monolithic response has risen to dominance, a wide range of new
> approaches have emerged of late. In an effort to set these new
> approaches in dialog, we are seeking essays that address the
> following:
> • The emergence of new ontologies and realisms
> • The impact of neuro-methodologies
> • The equivocal status of marxism and postmarxism
> • The rise of new anarchist theory
> • The erasure of the analytic/continental divide
> We intend to submit a full proposal to Cambridge Scholars Publishing,
> which has expressed an interest in this collection. Please send
> abstracts (800-1200 words) and a brief bio to rrothman at bucknell.edu
> and ianverstegen at yahoo.com by February 1, 2013.
