Call for Reviews:
Invisible Culture: An Electronic Journal for Visual Culture is soliciting reviews for
Issue 18, Making Sense of Visual Culture. With this issue, we will launch an expanded
Reviews section, for which we now seek submission. The articles in Making Sense of
Visual Culture draw on presentations from a conference hosted In April 2011 by the
Graduate Program in Visual and Cultural Studies at the University of Rochester. In
April we addressed institutional questions about the field of Visual Culture and explored
new approaches for researching an expanded range of sensory objects, phenomena, and
practices beyond the visual. More information about the conference can be accessed here:
IVC’s Reviews section for Issue 18 is soliciting reviews that investigate a broader range
of sensory experience beyond visual analysis. Reviews will be chosen for their ability to
complement this issue’s theme.
We encourage reviews that draw upon theoretical texts to assess art exhibitions, films,
architecture, television, landscape (either urban or rural), maps, food, games, websites,
magazines, music, dance, performance, conferences, lectures, fashion shows, sporting
events, political campaigns or any other types of events that promise to expand the scope
and tools of Visual Culture.
Please send inquiries and completed texts (MLA style), maximum 1000 words, to
firstname.lastname@example.org by January 15, 2012.
*********** Invisible Culture: An Electronic Journal for Visual Culture is a peer-
reviewed journal dedicated to explorations of the material and political dimensions of
cultural practices: the means by which cultural objects and communities are produced,
the historical contexts in which they emerge, and the regimes of knowledge or modes of
social interaction to which they contribute.
