3 Dec 2021 - Symposium on Race and Visual Culture
The increased relevance of visual culture within contemporary life has correlated with a rise in scholarly attention to visual production. This symposium taps into this widespread shift towards the visual, exploring recent developments in scholarly studies that argue for the centrality of visual arts to the question of race. It brings together a group of scholars whose works aim to rethink their fields from the perspectives, experiences, and struggles of Africans and African descendants, questioning scholarly traditions that have been shaped by inequality and exclusion.

The panels explore the role of visual arts as a key force in the making of political and social life: In the production of racialized identities, the (un)making of colonization and the decolonial, the power of archives and art museums in shaping structures of racial inequality, among other issues.
