MAY 11- 12: GEOGRAPHY AND GEOLOGY BUILDING, UNIVERSITY COLLEGE CORK
The call for papers is now closed. If you wish to attend the conference please contact us.
We encounter doubt every day. From the inane to the important, doubt infiltrates almost every thought, feeling and circumstance. Yet, what is doubt? Can doubt be defined? What does doubt involve?
Thinking about artistic production and visual representation, in what ways can doubt be a catalyst for change? How might doubt alter our perception? Is doubt problematic or productive? Is doubt historically specific or contingent?
By means of an interdisciplinary approach, this conference aims to explore the issue of doubt in modern and contemporary art and visual culture. The theme of doubt and visual representation will be analysed through a variety of topics from multiple and dynamic perspectives, looking at doubt in painting, drawing, photography, architecture, philosophy and from practitioners’ perspectives also.
