Call for Papers - Photography/Archives Ireland

School of Media, Dublin Institute of Technology, Friday 3rd November 2017
This one day symposium will bring together researchers and practitioners who are concerned to interrogate the role of the archive in the production of new knowledges about photography in Ireland, and those who offer alternative narratives of Irish culture through a focus on photography. It will provide a forum for the critical examination of a range of photographic and archival practices, within both official and unofficial, public and private contexts. The symposium aims to gather and acknowledge ongoing research in historic, artistic and vernacular photography as it intersects with practical and theoretical considerations of the archive.
We invite proposals for 20 minute presentations from researchers working in diverse fields and disciplines, such as: photography; media, visual, material and cultural studies; art history; museology; archival and librarian studies; digital humanities; visual anthropology and sociology; history and geography; architecture; and philosophy and literature. 
To propose a paper please send a 350 word abstract (excluding references) no later than June 16th 2017 to photographyarchivesireland@gmail.com
Proposals should also include the full name and title of the author, current affiliation, full contact details (address, email and phone number), and a brief biographical note.
Ann Curran (Programme Chair, BA Photography, DIT)
Fiona Loughnane (Assistant lecturer, Dept. of Visual Culture, NCAD)
