51st edition

Annual Conference of the International Visual Literacy Association

16.10.2019 - 19.10.2019

The conference theme is Navigating the visual. Crossing the boundaries of theories and practices. The conference will bring together different theoretical viewpoints and practices on visual literacy, joining scholars, students, and practitioners from all over the world in an interesting exchange of ideas. The conference is open to contributions on new theoretical insights, media, innovative practices and methodologies on assessment and evaluation.

The conference takes place in M – Museum Leuven (Leuven, Belgium), where the basic curatorial principle is based on visual awareness. Paper presentations, round tables, panel sessions, poster sessions and Pecha Kucha are invited. Participants are also welcome to join a workshop about the Gothic Saint Peters church with outstanding works of Flemish Masters in their authentic context, where a new visitor experience will touch all the senses.

We kindly invite you to submit your proposal to goedele.pulinx@mleuven.be. You can find the guidelines here.
