VISUAL CULTURE CAUCUS LUNCHTIME SESSION AT 2008 CAA IN DALLAS

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

The Fresh New Look of Sheepherding

There is an inexorable pressure to reinvent forms of visual culture
that function as political or ideological propaganda, since the
moment they are widely recognized as such, they cease to be
effective. Contemporary cultures treat media literacy as not only a
desirable goal, but as a sort of new consumable, providing periodic
ritualized unmaskings of media and government, satisfying an audience

appetite to feel well-informed. Given the difficulty of circumventing

this commodification of faux information, this sessions invites
papers and projects which investigate the cutting edge of
propagandaearly sightings of new venues, new tropes, new forms and
guises of political manipulation. Domestic, international,
contemporary and historical perspectives are welcome, as are
presentations by or about artists working with propaganda as a
subject matter.

Please submit an abstract (up to 500 words), a brief CV and contact
information (including summer contact information, if applicable) to
Stephanie Bacon at sbacon {AT} boisestate.edu by May 25.
