Objective: To provide opportunities for students, educators, scholars, and professionals to present their work at the 2019 "All-Inclusive: Photography for Social Justice" SPE Joint SW/W Chapter Conference, to be held November 1–3, 2019 at Santa Clara University.
Presentation Criteria: Although encouraged, topics are not limited to the theme and may include image-making, history, contemporary theory and criticism, multidisciplinary approaches, new technologies, effects of media and culture, teaching and learning strategies, educational issues, funding, demonstrations, and presentations of work in photography, film, video, performance, and installation.
Presentation Formats:***READ THESE VERY CAREFULLY*** • Imagemaker Presentation: For showing your own work as an imagemaker. Each presentation will be limited to 15 minutes to allow for as many presenters as possible. • Scholar Presentation: For showing a historical topic, theory, or another artist’s/artists' work. Each presentation will be limited to 15 minutes to allow for as many presenters as possible. • Panel Presentation: For an active 45-minute long discussion among panelist (max 3), moderator, and audience members on a specific topic. • Roundtable Conversation: For a meaningful facilitated 45-minute conversation that involves all participants of a small group of people (max 10) interested in talking about a specific topic. In your proposal, please describe strategies you will use to involve ALL participants equally in the conversation. • Demonstration: For a hands-on demonstration or short workshop that incorporates group participation (timing open to the needs of the proposal, please specify).
