Research in historical, artistic and vernacular photography has been
rapidly expanding in the past few years. Responding to this trend, the
International Conference of Photography and Theory (ICPT) was created
with an aim to provide an outlet for an interdisciplinary and critical
theoretical exploration of photography and photographic practices. The
3rd International Conference of Photography and Theory (ICPT2014) aims
once again at bringing together researchers and practitioners from
diverse fields of study who share a common interest in photography.
This year’s topic is ‘Photography and Politics and the Politics of

The end of the 20th century and the first years of the 21st century
were characterised by a series of dramatic events that deeply affected
social, cultural, political and economic structures across the board,
both globally and locally. These events have prompted artists and
theorists worldwide into a vehement engagement with political issues.
Photography has historically played a key role in this political
engagement, mainly through its evidential power: the camera becoming an
influential recording tool and the photograph as a proof of truth
telling. On the other hand, the veracity of an image and its
authenticating attributes have been strongly contested, raising issues
of ethics, manipulation and political steering. In parallel, the actual
medium of photography has undergone fundamental changes specifically
with regard to its production, distribution and consumption. The
historical production of photography has been strongly challenged and
even overly replaced by the emergence of what constitutes the
contemporary digital culture, again bringing to the fore essential and
often ethical issues related to the dissemination, reception and
interpretation of an image.

This conference aims to critically investigate the relationship between
photography and politics as well as the politics of the medium itself.
We invite proposals for 30-minute presentations (20 minutes
presentation and 10 minutes for discussion) from various disciplines,
such as: photography, art history and theory, visual sociology,
anthropology, museology, philosophy, ethnography, cultural studies,
visual and media studies, communications, and fine and graphic arts.
These should present an in-depth investigation of the relationship
between photography and politics and the politics of the photographic
practice historically, philosophically or through specific case studies.

Submitted proposals for presentations should address, but are not
limited to one of the following:

Photography and Politics:
