About Us

Established in 2005, the Durham Centre for Advanced Photography Studies (DCAPS) brings together academics with research interests in the photographic image at the University of Durham. It aims to forge regional, national and international links with researchers, practitioners, curators and others with shared interests in photography. In the light of an important pan-university initiative, DCAPS has now been incorporated into the Centre for Visual Arts and Culture (CVAC).

DCAPS IV - Doing Photography

The fourth international DCAPS conference took place in Durham on 9–11 January 2013. Go here for an outline of the conference.

New Blog

Visit our new blog on the Photographic Situation, part of an on-going network project in collaboration with colleagues based in Toronto, Canada.
