Visual Studies Reader

Lest you were worried that recent dissertations on visual arts were not continuing the honored tradition of “deep thoughts” on visuality, the Visual Studies Reader project, launched last year and to be published as a Wiki in 2012, invited current graduate students and recent PhD’s to submit articles for consideration.

A quick scan of the topics and titles yields peace of mind and satisfaction knowing that intellectualism is not dead. Drafts and “complete” essays are on the Table of Contents page. My personal faves are “Synaesthesia: Deleuze and Haptic Sensation;” “Lacan on Algebra, Graphs, and Topologies” and “Neurophenomenology and Aesthetics.”

Happy reading!
