The Centre for Visual Arts and Culture is delighted to announce that the Visual Intersections 5 Summer School will take place between 21-25 June 2021.

About the Summer School

The Durham Centre for Visual Arts and Culture and the Leverhulme Doctoral Training Programme in Visual Culture presents the fifth in a series of Summer Schools. Visual Intersections 5 brings together early career researchers working in a wide range of disciplines, whose work is connected by the study of visual phenomena. The 2021 summer school will be held online and will continue to stimulate interactive and engaging discussions, presentations and workshops within a virtual format. The summer school provides an open and welcoming intellectual space in which postgraduate and early career researchers can explore current issues in visual culture. This year the presentations will be complemented by a plenary lecture from Prof Maggie O’Neill (Professor of Sociology, University College Cork); virtual museum events including a talk from the Oriental Museum (Durham) and a virtual exhibition showcase curated by Durham MA students, and academic development workshops focused on wellbeing for PhD students and applying for academic jobs/ postdocs.
