HONOURS IN VISUAL STUDIES – STELLENBOSCH UNIVERSITY

Microsoft Word - Module Outline Visual Studies 178 2017.docx

Deadline

26 November 2020

Opportunity Description

Our intensive year-long Honours course is recognised as one of the best in the country. It brings together experts on art journalism, media theorists, and theorists of Visual Culture Studies.

We attract students who are interested in pursuing careers in the arts sector as publishers, curators, art critics, journalists and media specialists. As part of the yearly programme we offer special curricula themed around:

  • The intimate gendering of the camera lens in film and photography.
  • Subjectivity and the visual.
  • Transnationalism and the visualisation of gendered and sexual citizenship.

The course is structured around interactive seminars and reading groups but also involves visits to galleries and practical projects designed to cultivate curatorial skills. The intention is to create a dynamic and vibrant environment for the generation of new ideas and discursive understandings. We aim to produce thinkers whose ideas are relevant to ‘local’ concerns but resonate with intellectual traditions established elsewhere in the world.
