We're sorry. You are not yet a member of the Visual Culture Caucus.
Register or login to join this group.
The Visual Culture Caucus works to support the critical investigation of visual materials at the American Studies meetings and to provide a network for scholars working in visual studies from diverse disciplinary homes. Its members include teachers, museum curators, librarians, and others who research a variety of visual forms and media, such as painting, photography, sculpture, film, television, advertisements, cartoons, visual ethnographies, and the Internet. The VC Caucus works closely with the national organizing committees and councils of the ASA, organizes and sponsors sessions, conducts business, and co-hosts a reception at the ASA’s annual meeting.
Through this discussion board, the Caucus acts as a clearinghouse for people teaching and doing research in visual culture and those seeking to broaden their community or to gain the advice of other scholars and teachers. We are particularly devoted to the mentoring of emerging scholars, and encourage graduate students to participate in this forum, organize sessions through the caucus and attend our meetings.

The Visual Culture Caucus has started a Facebook page!
At this year’s annual meeting in Washington, the Visual Culture Caucus will be hosting a tour of the Federal Reserve Fine Arts Program, as well as the mural works at the Department of the Interior. Participants can sign up for the tour when they register for the conference.
Note that, as part of its security measures, the Federal Reserve requires the name, date of birth, and social security number of all participants one week in advance of the tour. The tour organizer, Matt Johnston (Assistant Professor of Art History, Lewis & Clark College, Portland, Oregon), will be contacting participants to arrange for collecting this information.
