As we visualize the theme of SAMLA 96, Seen and Unseen, we are tasked with discovering, uncovering, and recovering. What we see may only tell part of the story, while what we do not see may represent something more or something different. “Seen and Unseen” seeks to question what surrounds us, whether in the concrete or in the abstract. The exploration of concepts relating to visual culture, material studies, gender studies, disability studies, liminality, taboo, adaptations, censorship, scene/scenery or ‘behind the scenes’, film studies, and archives will anchor critical inquiries. In terms of professional development and pedagogy, the notions of visibility may guide conversations on capstone projects, job materials, contingent faculty, unseen labor, from (class) research to article publication, and from crafting/drafting to publishing/disseminating. To what degree, then, does the lens influence what and how we see?
