Midwest Regional Conference
The Chase Park Plaza - St. Louis , Missouri | October 06 - October 08, 2016
Mark your calendar! "Conflict Resolution" MWSPE kicks off on October 6th, and you're invited to take part in the festivities. Come one, come all, spread the word, and head to STL. The theme of this conference is “Conflict Resolution” looking at the role of photography and art in documenting, analyzing and interpreting confrontation and struggle from an individual, regional, national and global perspective. The theme originated from the unrest in nearby Ferguson and the conversations and community engagement that has developed since. Our goal is to bring speakers with immense impact. We set out to create a one-of-a-kind experience devoted what is happening right before our eyes and cameras as witnesses. This weekend will be an event which is actively engaged, presenting new context to/from our students and membership. CALL FOR PROPOSALS : DUE JUNE 15 We are looking for presentations focused on vast notions of conflict and how images may or may not provide the resolution. Proposals which specifically address the conference theme, and/or provide a critical or analytical take on how photography/photographic education could (or should evolve) will be considered for inclusion. Your lecture/program can take any form. Requirements: Proposals for papers, presentations, or panels should provide as much detail as possible but should not exceed 500 words. Proposals will be reviewed by the principal organizers and an advisory committee. All papers and presentations will be 45 minutes for professional members, 20 minutes for student members.Submit: 300-500 word abstract150-word biographical noteCV (PDF)8 images.
