Visual Ethics Network inaugural discussion: “Why Visual Ethics?”

Monday 14 November 2022, 5.00PM to 7.00PM

By employing the World Café Method for the inaugural session of VEN we will explore how we can define “visual ethics”, the lenses through which it has been approached in different disciplines, the key themes that could be explored in future sessions and explore whether the key questions differ significantly when posed from different disciplinary stances. In preparation for this event scanned versions of texts will be made available to those who RSVP.
