Deathscapes: Histories of Photography and Contemporary Photographic Practices

Deathscapes: Histories of Photography and Contemporary Photographic Practices

The invention of photography influenced dramatically how people remember and mourn the dead. The technological advances of photography have also influenced – and are still influencing – how war, conflict, accidents, and atrocities are being documented, circulated and received.

The 7th International Conference of Photography and Theory (ICPT2024) wishes to directly engage with what seems to be a contemporary field of crises and conflict that affects us all and brings forward significant questions that not only are historically relevant and longstanding but seem to resurface today demanding further study and debate.

This year’s conference will focus on the different ways in which histories of photography and contemporary photographic practices engage with death, politics, aesthetics and associated discourses.

A Call for Papers is now open for the Conference. The conference will take place in Nicosia, Cyprus, from the 7th to the 9th of November.

Relevant dates:

  • Deadline for submission: May 12, 2024
  • Notification of authors: June 30, 2024
  • Early registration deadline: August 1, 2024
  • Late registration deadline: October 20, 2024
  • Conference dates: November 7-9, 2024
