CHArt TWENTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONFERENCE
 
Seeing…Vision and Perception in a Digital Culture
 
Thursday 6 - Friday 7 November 2008
 
The Clore Lecture Theatre, Clore Management Centre, Birkbeck, University of London, Torrington Square, London, WC1 7HX.
 
THEME
 
This year's CHArt conference takes seeing as its theme and the associated questions of vision, perception, visibility and invisibility, blindness and insight - all in the context of our contemporary digital culture in which our eyes are assaulted by ever greater amounts of visual stimulus, while we are also increasingly being surveyed, on a continual basis.
 
What does it mean to see and be seen nowadays? How have advances in neuroscience or developments in technology altered our understanding of vision and perception? What kind of visual spaces do we now inhabit? What new kinds of visual experiences are now available? And what are now lost or no longer possible? How does the increasing digitalisation of media affect the experience of seeing? What and who might be rendered invisible by the processes of digital culture? What are our current digital culture's blindspots? What are its politics of seeing? The 2008 conference investigates such questions.
 
Places are limited so early booking is recommended.
 
The booking form is available online on www.chart.ac.uk.  Bookings made before 1 October 2008 will be entitled to a discount.  Conference fees (pounds sterling) - include coffee/tea breaks and lunch.
