Narrating the Visual, Visualizing the Narrative

Thursday, March 4, 2010 - 7:00pm to Friday, March 5, 2010 - 7:00pm

You are cordially invited to our NCSU History-dept sponsored conference on March 5 & 6, which will have presentations connecting to virtually everyone’s research and teaching interests.  The sessions for “Narrating the Visual, Visualizing the Narrative” are described on the conference website, http://faculty.chass.ncsu.edu/slspenc2/ .  They include “Cities ‘Seen’ Differently”;  “Historical Thinking, Visual Culture and Sample Technology Projects”;  “Seeing Through Popular Visual Culture”; “Landscape, Two- and Three-Dimensional”; “Visual Literacy, Visual Culture and Sample Technology Projects”; and “Architecture and Cultural Visions."

We are exploring how visual materials and new-tech resources can be used in new ways of thinking and working in history, and hope – among other outcomes – that these discussions will lead to collective grant proposals and projects.  Papers will be posted on the web as they are received, making the presentations shorter and more visually focused.

Since the lunch time will be working sessions, we are ordering boxed lunches for attendees (alas, $11), and ask that you preregister for the conference & order lunch by writing to:  narratingthevisual@gmail.com with the following information:

Name, Institution, Field of Specialization, and Email Address, choice of vegetarian or meat boxed lunch.

We hope to see you next week!

Sandria Freitag & Stephanie Spencer, NCSU History Dept
