©2010 Artacademia.netI think that this CFP may be of interest to a number of you interested in incorporating visual research methods into your thesis projects (such as Gauntlett's creative explorations). Perhaps a themed session proposal is in order? Something along the lines of "Using visual methods in information research"?
Via artacademia.net, a call for submissions for the Second International Visual Methods Conference, which will be held next September (Sept. 13-15, 2011) at the Open University in Milton Keynes, England. Here are the details, as posted on the conference website:
