StoryLab’s Director, Shreepali Patel will be presenting on the panel ‘Learning from other sectors: Competing Aims and Goals in Representation’ at The Visual and Critical Representation in an Age of Impact Seminar.

The proposed seminar engages with the politics of representation in an increasingly accelerated, regulated, metrics-driven, and marketised academic environment (Black et al 2015; Vostal, 2016) directed by the demands of REF. The seminar will consider the drawbacks and possibilities of visual research dissemination, in particular through social media pathways, using the lens of representation in a distracted-spectatorship culture (Nichols, 2017).
