— Photojournalism and documentary photography: the arrival of women to photojournalism, war reporting and social documentalism.
— Fashion and advertising photographers: woman as a professional in the current advertising and fashion communication industries.
— Mediated constructions of women photographers. From the first discourses in books and advertising to the representation of female photographers in film, television, videogames and social media.
— Photography and artistic praxis: the language and the photographic work of female artists. — Women ́s role in image processing: from the analogue praxis to the digital era. — Associations, activism and female empowering practices through photography.
— Curatorial discourses, museographic practices and edition of photobooks in relation to the work produced by women photographers.
— Theories of photography and educational practices on the uses of photography.
The Conference will accept up to 24 papers. All papers should be the result of unpublished scientific-academic research. The papers can be submitted in spanish or english, with a maximum extension of 7000 words. The papers must be submitted to this address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
