On 26-28 June 2019, an imagological conference will be hosted at the Center of Human Sciences of the University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn (Poland). The conference title is Image as a topic of communicative theory, cultural anrhropology and text semiotics. We will post the URL of the conference website as soon as it is onlne. A PDF can be downloaded here.
The imagology site will maintain a blog of contemporary manifestations of national essentialism – the spread of ethnotypes and the belief in ethnicity/“culture” as a social explanation. Many of these are diffuse, ephemeral, “banal”. Hence the need to capture and document them.
