Graduate Symposium 2019 on Contemporary Image Collections

Graduate Symposium 2019

The Contemporary Image Collections symposium brings together academics and professionals from the Humanities, Fine Arts, and Social Sciences, this symposium aims to redefine the “collection” in a present-day context.

The ways in which we think about and accumulate collections today is changing. Simultaneously, collections continue to drive human culture and societies, as they have for millennia. From gathering berries through amassing oil paintings to saving memes, collecting has served a variety of social functions.

The artist collects images that manifest in installations and assemblage. The scientist relies on the collection and interpretation of empirical data to verify innovative hypotheses. The academic curates collections in order to weave strong arguments.

This symposium will culminate in a collection, itself. While oral presentations are well received, the body of this symposium will consist of presentational posters. In doing so, we acknowledge the importance of both ephemeral and physical forms of collections in society.
