IVSA CONFERENCE: Call for Papers, Deadline Extended

Dear STS colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract for the International Visual Sociology Association Conference to be held on 27-29 June in Nairobi Kenya. It is a conference that is very friendly to STS, especially those doing anything methodologically, empirically or conceptually visual, including but not limited to video or photography.

Some travel funding is available. Please reach out to me if you have any questions.

Best, Matt

Conference dates: 27-29 June We are expanding our deadline for abstracts until Feb 1st. Thanks to those who have already submitted! The program is shaping up to be a cutting-edge review of new scholarship in visual sociology.

We invite abstracts for papers, photo essays, posters, films, and workshops that explore the theme SEEING BEYOND DUALISMS: VISUAL SOCIOLOGY IN LOCAL AND GLOBAL CONTEXTS. As we excitedly return to an in-person conference, we invite submissions that consider places/spaces, considering visual sociology in local and global contexts through an open exchange of scholarship and creative works. IVSA continues to encourage papers, films, photo essays, posters and workshops that examine society and culture from various disciplines and perspectives, and we welcome abstracts that address topics relating to visual theories and methods. Proposals need not specifically address the theme of the conference.

The 2023 IVSA conference is hosted by the Multimedia University south of Nairobi, Kenya, and will be entirely in person. (There will not be a hybrid option.) SUBMISSION GUIDELINES All presenters should submit abstracts of no more than 250 words through the EasyChair conference management system ( ). Prior to submitting, you will need to create an EasyChair account if you do not already have one.

Abstracts submitted through EasyChair must include the following:

  • Title of presentation
  • Name of presenter(s) as it will appear in the program
  • Organization/Affiliation of presenter(s)
  • Email address of presenter(s)
  • Type of submission (paper, film, poster, workshop etc.) at the top of the abstract
  • Abstract text (250 words, maximum)
  • Keywords (three or four)
  • Filmmakers should include a link to their film file within their abstract (and a password to access, if protected)
  • All submissions, regardless of their central medium (text, film/video, photography, illustration, web-/app-based, etc.) will be evaluated on their scholarly, artistic and scientific-analytic merit.

All conference presenters and attendees must be members of the IVSA. Participants can only be a lead author on one presentation. In the case of multiple authored papers, all authors must be members of the IVSA and pay conference fees to be listed on the program.

The Conference Committee will select submissions for inclusion in panel and poster sessions. Video- and film-based presentations may include works-in-progress as part of panel presentations, in addition to screening completed works. Abstracts for these works should be submitted in the same manner as paper presentations with the expectation that screened excerpts will be included in the presentation. Completed films can be entered into the peer-reviewed film stream, which screens films. (Filmmakers should include a link to their file (along with the password, if protected) within their abstract.)

The Conference Committee will also evaluate and select workshops during the conference. Workshops at previous IVSA conferences have included on-site photo and film assignments and editing workshops. Workshops normally take place during the three days of the conference, and can include include a one- to two-hour session on the first day, and session on the final day for participants to present their work.
