This year, VizCult, the department’s visual culture workshop, enters its twenty-sixth season, having run continuously since Fall 1997, undeterred by financial crisis, pandemic or the vicissitudes of academic fashion. VizCult is more than just a speakers’ series. It has shaped a unique space within the life of the department in which we can come together to share current work in progress and experience ourselves as an intellectual community–something that often gets lost in the rush of administrative and teaching deadlines. All are invited to come along and participate.
