The Material and Visual Worlds Transdisciplinary Area of Excellence supports innovative research, scholarship and creative practice across a range of disciplines that engage things and images as gatherings of technologies, materials, histories and interactions extending through space and time. The Material and Visual Worlds Working Group is a central element of this project: a reading group for faculty and graduate students that critically engages scholarship and practice centrally concerned with issues of materiality and/or visuality.
