In two weeks the University of Pittsburgh Department of the History of Art and Architecture and the School of Information Sciences will jointly host the Debating Visual Knowledge Graduate Student Symposium, bringing together young scholars from various disciplines. The three day symposium is free and open to the public, so if you live in the Pittsburgh area or want to make the drive from elsewhere, please mark your calendars for October 3rd-5th. Visual knowledge forms the common thread across the panels and lectures, manifesting itself in projects from diverse disciplines, including art history, theatre, information science, communication, English, history of medicine, critical studies, and biology. Scholars will be coming from the University of Pittsburgh, Harvard University, the University of Toronto, the University of Delaware, Rutgers University, the University of Utah, Fribourg University, the University of Pennsylvania, Johns Hopkins University, the University of Chicago, Pennsylvania State University, Pratt Institute, Boston University, and Carnegie Mellon University. I will be providing more updates during the event itself, actively blogging during sessions. Watch this space!
