Expanding the Visual Field
A Graduate Student Conference

psychoanalysis, performance, technology, consumerism, race, and
colonialism shifted the terms of visual study? "Expanding the Visual
Field," a one-day conference at USC, will pursue this question through a
series of twenty-minute presentations. The conference will provide a
forum for graduate students in art history and related disciplines (e.g. film
studies, history, cultural studies, comparative literature, architecture,
anthropology, etc.) to present scholarly research and engage in
intellectual dialogue with colleagues at other institutions and departments.
Students throughout the humanities and social sciences are invited to
