Theme: Continents of Photography
"No man is an island, entire of itself: Every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main."
(John Donne 1572-1631)
The idea of living in a connected world is a familiar one.
Hosted by NTU and the University of Nottingham, this conference aims to explore how the nature of being connected can change or influence our understanding of the cultural, political and social boundaries of photography. It seeks to question how we, as photographic educators, bring that experience into our classrooms, labs and studios.
The conference is, in itself, a means of connection. A way of sharing local stories and questioning the nature of the global frameworks we find ourselves placed within. We will seek to chart connections, map worlds and plot the pictures which show us to be individual and yet part of the main. The aim is to explore, inspire, question, share stories and good practice and learn from the experience of our members and contributors bringing together the islands into one shifting continent of photography.
As the UK's network for photography educators, the conference will be looking to forge positive connections across pedagogy, practice and research. We welcome submissions from academics, practitioners, and researchers.
