Visual Politics and Contemporary Culture: Ideology, Representation and Narrative Space
Three Day National Seminar On Visual Politics and Contemporary Culture: Ideology, Representation and Narrative Space organized by Centre for Comparative Literature, Sree Sankaracharya University of Sanskrit, Kalady on April 5th, 6th and 7th at Main Centre Kalady, Ernakulam, Kerala.
This seminar would discuss visual-image discourses on contemporary cultural contexts and political positions. The visuals are superimposed over the society, which leads to new cultural shift. It is an unobjectionable fact that visual culture influences our daily lives by creating identities and by generally influencing our views. The creation of movement and pattern within the film create a space for the action to take place, where the spectator follows and moves throughout the narrative space provided by the film. We particularly welcome the contributions on the presence of narrative space and politics of cinematic representation in cinema and the role of film in the social construction of culture.
We invite research papers from research scholars, teachers and P G students of colleges and universities and academicians of other field interest in this subject. Eminent scholars and theoreticians, performers and film personalities would participate in this seminar as resource persons. You are welcome to discuss aspects of your work and talk of its challenging and exciting moments.
Contributory papers are invited on the following sessions:
• SESSION I: Narrative Space: Concept, Strategies, and Representation
• SESSION II: Perspectives on Politics in (at) cinema
• SESSION III: Exhibition as stage: performance, theatre and body
• SESSION IV: Politics of visual culture and ideology
• SESSION V: Media as new media
