The 2010 Society for Photographic Education (SPE) West regional
conference New Sites, takes place in San Diego, California on November
12th – 14th.  The keynote speaker is the arts critic Lucy Lippard and
the honored educator is John Divola. San Diego City College hosts the
event and the evening presentations will be held at the San Diego
Museum of Photographic Arts – both these venues are in the Balboa Park
area of San Diego.

The conference invites image-makers, theoreticians and historians to
propose papers or workshops that consider the notion of site as a
place of contestation, collaboration or mediation today. The body as
site, burial sites, fake sites and new landscapes, identity as site or
border sites represent just some of the ways in which the theme of New
Sites can be interpreted. The conference also invites educators to
propose workshops or discussion groups on topics not specific to the
theme. All proposals are peer reviewed by the SPE West Board.

Competitive scholarships waiving the registration fee will be awarded
to undergraduate and graduate students and to adjunct lecturers.
Please see application submission information below.

All Submissions Due: 19th  September, 2010

Conference Co-chairs are Julia Schlosser – who is a lecturer teaching
photography and the history of photography at California State
University, Northridge – and Connie Begg – who is the Associate
Director of Fine Art in the Graduate School of Photography at the
Academy of Art University.
