Visual Studies: New Currents

“Visual Studies” is a term given to a cluster of scholarly and practical approaches to the study of visual culture and the production of art. SUNY Brockport's MFA Program in Visual Studies and the Visual Studies Workshop has been on the forefront of this interdisciplinary field for many years and recognizes the need to constantly "rethink" its possibilities. This panel will bring to light new thinking and practices of visual studies, especially with regard to current developments in “imagetexts” and information. The panel will also bring forward our work in defining a theory and practice of “media literature” as an exemplary visual studies approach. It is hoped that the panel’s presentation will generate on campus interest in and understanding of the work of the MFA Program in Visual Studies.
