CVAC Reading Group

1:00pm to 2:00pm, Elvet Riverside 149

The Postgraduate Reading Group meets weekly on Tuesdays in term time from 13:00 to 14:00 in ER 149. The objective is to cultivate an informal interdisciplinary environment in which students can engage in discussion of a range of topics that are both of immediate relevance to the development of their individual research needs, and to the study of visual arts and cultures more generally, particularly the application of theory to visual artefacts. Meetings will be set in motion each week by sample texts that students should read through and prepare in advance so that they can participate fully in discussion.

Filming Fashion: Fashioning Film

10:00am to 7:30pm, The Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle

Coinciding with the UK exclusive exhibition, Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal, this one-day symposium brings together scholars and practitioners to consider the dynamic, mutually reinforcing relationship between fashion and film. The symposium, convened by The Bowes Museum and Durham University’s Centre for Visual Arts and Culture, will consider how film influences trends in fashion, and vice versa, how fashion (and the history of fashion) is captured on film, and how the presence of fashion affects cinematic culture.

In addition to keynote addresses from Alistair O’Neill and Professor Stella Bruzzi FBA and roundtable discussions on YSL and Film and New Directions in Fashion and Film Studies, participants will be invited to a private viewing of the YSL exhibition and a screening of Yves Saint Laurent, Directed by Jalil Lespert. The symposium will also showcase several projects on fashion and film by early career researchers.

Annual lecture in Constructions of Knowledge: Photography and the Matter of Sensory Evidence: The Kansas Wind and Power Project

5:00pm to 7:00pm, Lindisfarne Centre, St. Aidan's College, Durham University, Professor Lisa Cartright

What is the current potential of photography as a tool for reflexively engaging with sensory evidence? A historical sensory field study of the transformation from grain to wind farming conducted in the North American grain belt between 2009 and 2014 by Lisa Cartwright and photographer Steven Rubin is the basis for this investigation of what constitutes sensory evidence and how research-based art practice may inform the interdisciplinary field of visual and historical cultural studies.
