I organized this year’s Sociology Student Symposium at Siena College, which took place on April 12, 2014. It was co-sponsored by the Sociology Department, School of Liberal Arts, CURCA, and the Damietta Cross Cultural Center. It was a one day event full of student presentations, documentary films, and a keynote address by visual sociologist Douglas Harper, a professor at Duquesne University and president of the International Visual Sociology Association. The theme of the conference this year was “Visual Cultures,” and panelists examined the ways in which we can understand our culture through visual imagery, as well as deconstruct the meanings of the visual in our culture.
