Call for Papers: 

Migration and Visuality

We invite papers that explore visuality and the margins of Empire, including considerations of migrants and migrations from zones that are traditionally neglected in academic and public conversations, such as the Caribbean, Africa and East Asia. We encourage papers that deal with the ways in which migrants and colonized religious "others" are depicted in film and other forms of visual culture (television, photography, graphic art, graffiti, clothing, etc.). How do visual media affect the ways in which we understand these people and events? Any papers related to these themes as well as broader issues of colonialism and postcolonialism in relation to visual culture are invited.
