Reconsidering the 2006 MIT Visualizing Cultures Controversy


Winner of the 2015 CELJ Award for Best Special Issue, this special issue of positions takes a look back at the MIT "Visualizing Cultures" controversy of 2006. Rather than frame the controversy as Chinese student censorship of US scholarship, contributors turn their attention to a broad interrogation of wartime imagery and the representation of violence, student activism and image-driven nationalism in cyberspace, digital pedagogy and the impact of the Internet on knowledge production.
