New ECREA Sections are established from ECREA Temporary Working Groups (TWGs) following a consultation process with representatives of existing Sections and Networks is in which all four proposals received majority support. Moreover, all four TWGs have demonstrated lively academic activity during the past four years, raising interest in their respective fields and accumulating substantial following among ECREA membership.
We are also pleased to announce the establishment of a new Temporary Working Group Visual Cultures, which we hope will provide a lively forum for investigation of the ever more present visual culture. ECREA TWGs are established following a bi-annual public call. All proposals are put on consultation with existing ECREA entities before being voted on by the Executive Board. The next call for new TWGs will be launched in the second half of 2016.
All members of ECREA are invited to join the new Sections and Visual Cultures TWG in their membership profile on the ECREA intranet.
