The Grad Forum generates opportunities for graduate students to engage the field of visual culture. We encourage the work of emerging scholars by building relationships between students and hosting professional outlets for the creation and presentation of creative and scholarly work. Activities include, but are not limited to: a contact network, advocacy for grad student research and initiatives, participation in IAVC conferences, presence on the IAVC website, and hosting co-productive and/or social events.

The Grad Forum charts the emerging areas of visual culture–exploring new methods, practices, and theories, alongside historical/disciplinary precedents. The Grad Forum seeks to expand the field of Visual Culture Studies for future professional work and recognition, meanwhile advancing a more interdisciplinary academic and artistic culture through transnational and transdisciplinary exchanges.
