Farewell to Visual Studies, Paperback / softback Book

Farewell to Visual Studies Paperback / softback

Edited by James Elkins, Gustav Frank, Sunil Manghani

Part of the The Stone Art Theory Institutes series


Each of the five volumes in the Stone Art Theory Institutes series brings together a range of scholars who are not always directly familiar with one another's work.

The outcome of each of these convergences is an extensive and "unpredictable conversation" on knotty and provocative issues about art.

This fifth and final volume in the series focuses on the identity, nature, and future of visual studies, discussing critical questions about its history, objects, and methods.

The contributors question the canon of literature of visual studies and the place of visual studies with relation to theories of vision, visuality, epistemology, politics, and art history, giving voice to a variety of inter- and transdisciplinary perspectives.

Rather than dismissing visual studies, as its provocative title might suggest, this volume aims to engage a critical discussion of the state of visual studies today, how it might move forward, and what it might leave behind to evolve in productive ways. The contributors are Emmanuel Alloa, Nell Andrew, Linda B ez Rub , Martin A.
