The 2010 Society for Photographic Education (SPE) West regional conference New Sites, takes place in San Diego, California on November 12th – 14th. All Photographic educators, students, critics, curators and enthusiasts are invited to attend. See below regarding submitting image maker and panel proposals as well as full student scholarships to attend and show your portfolio!
The keynote speaker is the arts critic Lucy Lippard and the honored educator is John Divola. San Diego City College hosts the event and the evening presentations will be held at the San Diego Museum of Photographic Arts – both these venues are in the Balboa Park area of San Diego.
The conference invites image-makers, theoreticians and historians to propose papers or workshops that consider the notion of site as a place of contestation, collaboration or mediation today. The body as site, burial sites, fake sites and new landscapes, identity as site or border sites represent just some of the ways in which the theme of New Sites can be interpreted. The conference also invites educators to propose workshops or discussion groups on topics not specific to the theme. All proposals are peer reviewed by the SPE West Board.
Competitive scholarships waiving the registration fee will be awarded to undergraduate and graduate students and to adjunct lecturers. Please see application submission information below.
