Polar Visual Culture: An International Conference

Registration has now opened for Polar Visual Culture: An International Conference, which will take place at the University of St Andrews on 17-18 June 2011. For speakers and registration details, see the conference website:

Convened by Natalie Adamson and Luke Gartlan, this conference brings together a diverse, internationally recognised group of scholars to present new research on the visual culture of polar exploration. We aim to focus attention upon the unique, prolific and hitherto under-examined visual culture - with a strong focus on photography, but also including film, painting and graphic illustration, expedition and frontier narratives, installations and poetic geographies - that the expeditions to the two polar regions have inspired since the early nineteenth century, and which forms a fundamental part of our perception of these environments.

 

We invite all those interested in these themes to register for this important conference and join us in St Andrews.
