Call for Applications: The Politics of Looking

The IFK International Research Center for Cultural Studies announces its
call for applications for Senior and Research Fellowships for the academic
year 2007 – 2008.
“The politics of looking – visual cultures in
conflict” the IFK invites analysis of the phenomenon of antagonistic visual
cultures, which mirror different social codes of the gaze and different
concepts of looking, desire, image prohibition, and shame. This focus
entails the analysis of iconophilia, iconophobia, and iconoclasm within the
wider context of Western and non-Western cultures and their modes of
imagery, and thus wants to shed light on the interplay of media and the
international renaissance of religious beliefs.
