                                 VISUAL KNOWLEDGES

                  University of Edinburgh, 17-20 September 2003

    This interdisciplinary conference will investigate the role of visual
    technologies in informing, shaping and creating knowledge. Its
    overarching aim is to investigate the claims of scholars such as Barbara
    Stafford, Martin Jay, and Timothy Binkley that our own culture is
    currently, in the wake of the electronic revolution, undergoing a shift in
    which the visual medium, traditionally playing a secondary role as the
    illustration of text, is becoming the dominant medium of thought.

    The conference will project forward by casting backwards in time to
    survey the role of successive new technologies of vision in generating
    new cultures of knowledge, perception, and experience. From the
    seventeenth-century invention of the telescope and the microscope, and
    the progressive elaboration of spatial representation in photography,
    cinema, the x-ray, scanning technologies and the interactive computer
    screen, the conference addresses the broad role of technologies of the
    visible in culture.

    Conference sessions will include both historical and thematic panels. All
    will be asked to reflect on the relationship of their topic to the emerging
    history of the new media and its cultural consequences.

    Plenary speakers will include:
    John Bender (Stanford Humanities Center)
    Tony Bennett (Open University)
    Jonathan Crary (Columbia University)
    Simon During (Johns Hopkins University)

             Copyright in A Digital World - A Practical Workshop

                        Full 2003 Series Announced

             * Registration for June 20 ALA Workshop Opens Soon *

    The Colorado Digitization Program, NINCH and OCLC are collaboratively
    producing a series of day-long practical workshops on copyright issues for
    the cultural community in a digital age. The series is funded by IMLS.

    After the success of the first workshop, held as an IMLS Webwise
    preconference, January 26, the organizing committee is pleased to announce
    the schedule for the rest of 2003.

    * American Library Association Annual Conference (Toronto, June 20)
    * Society of American Archivists Annual Meeting (Los Angeles, August 20) and
    * American Association for State and Local History Annual Meeting
    (Providence, September 17).

    A key feature of the workshops is the production of a continuously
    expanding Resource Set of materials designed to enable participants take
    the lessons home to the workplace and organize their own workshops.

    The next workshop, co-sponsored with the Canadian Heritage Information
    Network, (CHIN), and partially funded by OCLC, will take place as a
    pre-conference of the 2003 Annual Meeting of the American Library
    Association on Friday June 20, 2003, from 9:00am to 4:30pm. It will be held
    at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

    ALA/CLA conference registration is NOT required for attendance at the
    Toronto workshop and there is no fee; but you must register to attend.
    Online registration begins in May. If you would like to be notified when
    registration is available, please e-mail Amy Lytle at

    Rina Pantalony, Legal Counsel for the Canadian Heritage Information
    Network, will open the Toronto meeting with a keynote address on critical
    copyright issues facing the community. She will be followed by five
    speakers, well-known for their expertise: Lolly Gasaway, University of
    North Carolina; Georgia Harper, University of Texas; Maria Pallante-Hyun,
    Pallante-Hyun, LLC; Rachelle Browne, Smithsonian Institution; and Linda
