The Nordic Network for Digital Visuality has now formally come to an end. A final result of this four-year collaboration is Visual Frictions, a special issues of Journal of Aesthetic and Culture, Volume 7 (2015).
12-13 February 2015 a final workshop will be held in Stockholm, sponsored by the Nordic Network of Digital Visuality.
The workshop programme is now available.
“Beyond the Frame: The Future of the Visual in an Age of Digital Visuality” was the theme for the final conference of the Nordic Network for Digital Visuality (NNDV), held April 7-9 at the Vår Gård conference center outside of Stockholm. The conference was organized to provide an opportunity and challenge to think beyond the frame of the image – theoretically, methodologically and epistemologically. The theme was also designed to address the central aim of the network’s third year: to focus on digital diversity, and with attention to comparative studies of digital visuality in different social and cultural contexts.

Digital visuality refers to the production and consumption of digitally mediated expressions of selfhood and society through visual and audio-visual interfaces. The network will bring together Nordic researchers and PhD students in the social sciences, focusing on the following aspects of this emerging field:
Visuality and digital media as they intersect in everyday life
Visual and multimodal research methods, including methodological reflections on visual and multisensory methods of scientific inquiry
Digital diversity, including comparative studies of digital visuality in different social and cultural contexts, global distribution and stratification of digital media.
