The Developing Room’s 8th Annual Graduate Student Colloquium

Rutgers University – New York University

April 26th, 2024

The Developing Room, a photography working group at Rutgers University’s Center for Cultural Analysis, announces its eighth graduate colloquium in collaboration with the positions: asia critique journal and New York University.

With a special focus on Global Asias, this year’s colloquium is organized by three PhD students, from Comparative Literature and Art History at Rutgers and East Asian Studies at NYU. We invite doctoral students—at any stage and from any field of study—whose research critically engages with photography in/as/and/against the archive around the issues of Asia and its diasporas. The colloquium will open with a keynote speech, and each graduate participant will give a 20 to 25-minute presentation and engage in a faculty-led panel discussion. Selected papers will also be considered for publication in positions politics, the online platform of positions.
