Get Involved with the Centre for Visual Cultures

Get Involved

Whether you are a student, staff member, researcher, gallery or other organisation, we would like to hear from you.

If you are a student with significant research interests in the visual cultures and (non-)visuality, we welcome expressions of interest for affiliation with the Centre for Visual Cultures. Please reach out to us with your name, a short description of your coursework and research in this broad area, and your contact information. 

If you are a part of a graduate student organisation with a research focus on visual cultures and (non-)visuality, we are interested in affiliate organisations. The Centre can co-host events, coordinate speakers, and provide some logistical support for the work that you are doing. 

In the area of research, we host research groups of academic staff and students who have projects related to the study of visual cultures and (non-)visuality. We serve as a space where researchers can share, discuss, and provide feedback for each other’s research, and forge new research connections. We support our affiliates and associates as they seek external funding for research in this broad area, and to be able to provide seed support. The Centre is also open to other ways that we can be supportive of your work in visual cultures and (non-)visuality. 

In the area of teaching, we engage in providing support for integrating work on visual cultures and (non-)visuality into programmes and modules. We maintain a list of resources for teaching in this broad area and host teaching-related events and workshops. The Centre is also open to other ways in which we can be supportive of your work in teaching in this area. 

We have an ever-evolving list of people (see ‘People’ below) affiliated with the Centre for Visual Cultures and projects (see ‘Projects’ below) on which its members are working. Please reach out to us or the project leads if you have something to offer any of our listed projects.

If you are looking for research partners for your own project, please contact the Centre and we will be able to make suggestions. You can engage with us on Twitter and let us know if there are any events we are hosting that you would like to attend, and/or events that you would like to co-organise. 

Many of our events are open to the public and anyone who is interested. Events are held at Royal Holloway in Egham and central London, at other venues, and online. Details are on our ‘Events’ page (see below), or follow us on Twitter

If you are thinking of studying at Royal Holloway in the area of visual cultures and (non-)visuality, then please email the CVC or contact the Centre’s director, Professor James Williams, directly.
