ASMCF-SSFH Postgraduate Study Day 2022 Call for papers - Images: Past & Present A virtual study day to be held on 23 April 2022 Keynote: To Be Confirmed What happens when the images come into the world? With or without its consent, civil society has been constantly imaged, recorded, documented, archived and exhibited. This omnipresence of images created, circulated, and displayed merits an analysis of the multiplicity of its forms and its roots. This year, we have decided to focus on images, their disconcerting plurality, and their power which keeps in reserve infinite possibilities of actualisation; we have decided to follow them through heterogeneous geographies and temporalities of the French and Francophone world.
