About Visible Evidence

The Visible Evidence community is a collection of scholars and practitioners engaged in research and debates on historical and contemporary documentary practice and nonfiction media culture.

Work presented at conferences focuses on the role of film, video and other media as record, witness, and voice of social reality, exploring a wide range of cultural, political, social, historical, ethnographic, aesthetic, and pedagogical questions and perspectives from fields such as film studies, communication studies, anthropology, architecture, art history, ethnic studies, queer studies, history, journalism, law, medicine, political science, geography, sociology, urban studies and gender studies.

The XXVIII Visible Evidence – Call for Papers!

The XXVIII Visible Evidence Conference will take place at the University of Gdansk between 10 and 14 August 2022. The event is conceived as an “in person” event, and we warmly invite everybody to make every effort physically to attend the sessions. As this year’s conference will focus on connections between history and documentary film making, we think it is particularly important that VE scholars and practitioners enjoy a literal and physical encounter with the city of Gdansk. However, there will be some opportunities to participate remotely and we will stream the whole event.
