Society for Photographic Education West: Student Scholarships for 2010 Conference

CALL FOR SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS: STUDENTS AND ADJUNCTS for SPE West Conference 2010, San Diego

All Submissions Due: September 19th, 2010

The conference invites image-makers, theoreticians and historians to propose papers or workshops that consider the notion of site as a place of contestation, collaboration or mediation today. The body as site, burial sites, fake sites and new landscapes, identity as site or border sites represent just some of the ways in which the theme of New Sites can be interpreted. The conference also invites educators to propose workshops or discussion groups on topics not specific to the theme. All proposals are peer reviewed by the SPE West Board.

Competitive scholarships waiving the registration fee will be awarded to undergraduate and graduate students and to adjunct lecturers. Please see application submission information below.
