Session Description:

We use the Pecha Kucha format for a lively exploration of how visuality is connected to vulnerability, with a focus on narratives of contemporary crisis. Each presentation asks how the aesthetic strategies of visual and image meaning making underwrite or unsettle our cognitive, affective, and ethical encounter with vulnerability in times of social crisis.
