New Publications from Centre Members

The Centre for Visual Studies is pleased to announce two new publications:

New monograph

Julia Banwell, Teresa Margolles and the Aesthetics of Death (2015, University of Wales Press): The book explores aspects of the work of the Mexican contemporary neo-conceptual artist Teresa Margolles from theoretical perspectives including trauma and memory, the philosophy of death, and the spectatorship of death and the corpse, against the backdrop of Mexico's long and rich history of depicting and visualising death.

A book launch will be held on Thursday 25 June at Blackwells on Mappin Street, at 5.30pm. There will be refreshments and we will adjourn to a nearby bar afterwards. All are welcome to come and join in the festivities!

New book chapter

Matthew Cheeseman 'Popular music and the breast' in Cultural Encyclopaedia of the Breast, ed. by Smith, M. (New York: Rowman & Littlefield, 2014): Boobs. Tits. Hooters. Knockers. Jugs. Breasts. We celebrate them; we revile them. They nourish us; they kill us. And regardless of what we call them, breasts have fascinated us since prehistoric times. This A-to-Z encyclopedia explores the historical magnitude and cultural significance of the breast over time and around the world.
