liquid blackness is pleased to share the CFP for the next Rendering (the) Visible. As the cfp states, the graduate program in Moving Image Studies at Georgia State University has, over the past several years, been exploring some of the implications of liquidity, specifically in relation to race, via our research group liquid blackness. Now, however, we wish to explore the ways in which the concept of liquidity might begin to chart new ways to understand the image’s relation to space, sensoriality, and digitality, as well as to develop an aesthetic sensibility attuned to the political ontology of motion, form, matter, and noise.

Abstracts are due October 20. Please share widely. The conference will be held February 8-10 2018 in the School of Film, Media & Theatre at Georgia State University.
