The aim of the temporary working group is to provide a forum for discussing and developing work on visual cultures and material practices in a context of broadly understood media and communication scholarship. The objectives are simple: deepen theoretical and empirical understanding of ways in which visual cultures and material practices intertwine, and provide a platform for scholars at various stages in their academic career for constructive dialogue.
