Research Proposals?

In my recent cyber readings I stumbled on this site, thesip.org. They are calling for research proposals on Photography. More specifically:-

"With the proliferation of cameras and other image-capturing devices, there is a pressing need to conceptualize the human experience as immersed in and shaped by photographic images. Arguably, the long dominance of written culture has given way to a visual culture dominated by photography-based images and their technologies. Yet the profusion of theories and systems that analyze and interpret languages and literatures has not seen an equivalent production of theories and systems that help to interpret and theorize our contemporary culture of photo-based images and their history" source

If I wasn't contemplating a PhD, myself I'd write something, because they have a very interesting list of themes to explore

  • Theme 1: Photography and the Body
  • Theme 2: Photography and Other Media
  • Theme 3: Photography and Privacy
  • Theme 4: Album, Archive, Database, Flickr
  • Theme 5: Pre-history of photography
  • Theme 6: Open

Please forward this on if any one you know might be interested?
