Subject: 	Conference Date Correction
Date: 	5 December 2007 00:46:16 GMT

Some months ago, we sent you a CFP and conference announcement. The original
is listed below. The dates for the conference were listed incorrectly. The
conference is actually occurring on June 6-7, 2008. All other dates remain
the same. Sorry for any confusion this may have caused.

Kind regards,
Keith Owens

Conference: Power to Empowerment: Critical Literacy in Visual Culture
Dates of conference: June 6-7, 2008 (now corrected)
Location: Dallas, Texas

Papers are solicited for an international, transdisciplinary conference
examining visual literacy as it is shaped by, shapes and integrates private
and public identity and subjectivity through social institutions and forces
including education, politics, ethics, technology, media, marketing,
commerce, the environment and society. The conference understands visual
literacy from the perspective of individuals, communities, groups and
organizations to mean the ability to successfully compose and deliver
meaningful communication as well as decode and interpret visual messages. It
involves perceiving visual images as components of a larger culture matrix,
constituting their meaning and significance, discerning relationships
between their intended and actual purposes and audiences, and acting with or
upon them. Visual literacy generates and is affected by relationships
between the visual, literacy and power, including disenfranchisement.
Particular themes or topics for papers may include but are not limited to
the economics of visual culture, constructing the visual landscape, visual
culture and affiliations and disenfranchisements, brands and users,
ethnographies of visual culture, the charge of education to superintend
visual literacy, visual literacy and power, visual illiteracy, visual
culture and social difference, and visual cultures of everyday life.

Abstracts between 250-500 words are sought for 15-20 minute paper
presentations. The deadline to receive abstracts is February 1, 2008.
Notification of acceptance will be March 1, 2008. 

Please send your abstract electronically as a word-document to Keith Owens,

Subject: Using the stored collections of museums

Dear mail list member,

I am researching the uses of museum collections, and I would like to get
some information from those who use collections,
not just from museums themselves. I would be very grateful if you would
complete a short questionnaire which you will find here:

http://opinio.ucl.ac.uk/s?s=1612

The deadline for responses is 20th December.

The project is described on:
http://www.ucl.ac.uk/storedcollections/

Thank you in advance; I hope you will complete the
questionnaire,

Suzanne Keene

Up the Ladder and Down the Wall: Children and Outdoor Play in English Cities
and Suburbs, 1945-1975
An Illustrated Evening Lecture by Alan Powers
Wed 6th Feb 2008, 7-8.30pm
Museum of Domestic Design & Architecture (MoDA), Middlesex University, Cat
Hill, Barnet, Herts EN2 6NL

The use of gardens as playing spaces for children gained a new significance
in the post-war years owing to the baby boom, new theories about the
significance of play, health, and new ideas from garden designers about how
gardens could become more suitable for children. These ideas had an impact
in a wider sphere of playgrounds, but in private gardens, especially
suburban ones, they were rapidly assimilated.

Speaking as a child of the era, Alan Powers will try and match his memories
of gardens to documentation in photographs, paintings and garden books that
might reconstruct the chronology and sources involved in things that rapidly
became taken for granted, and seem so far to have attracted little academic
or general interest.

This event supports MoDA's current temporary exhibition The Suburban
Landscape: Two Hundred Years of Gardens and Gardening (July '07 - 24th Feb '08)

The Speaker
Alan Powers is Chairman of the Twentieth Century Society and Professor of
Architecture and Cultural History at the University of Greenwich. He has
published widely  on the history of art, architecture and design in Britain
in the 20th century. His books include  Modern: The Modern Movement in
Architecture (Merrell, 2005) and The Twentieth Century House in Britain
(Aurum, 2004).

Tickets, Bookings & Enquiries
£7.00 full price, £5.00 concessions (incl. students & Middlesex staff)

To book your tickets, please download a booking form from MoDA's website -
