Delegates from all over the world who attended the Fifth International Conference on The Image.
No image can solely be a mirror on the world. This is because it is the outcome of an act of human agency. There is a more- than-fortuitous etymological connection between "image" and "imagination." Images can be willed. They can speak to hopes and aspirations. The world re-seen is the world transformed. What's in the imagination for now can become an agenda for practice and politics tomorrow. The conference theme for 2014—Representation of Possibility: Understanding Change and Continuity through the Image—aims to engage the fundamental question of agency at the core of image making and interpretation.
The Fifth International Conference on The Image featured plenary sessions by some of the world’s leading thinkers and innovators in the field.
For each conference, a small number of Graduate Scholar Awards are given to outstanding graduate students who have an active academic interest in the conference area. The Award with its accompanying responsibilities provides a strong professional development opportunity for graduate students at this stage in their academic careers.
