The Institute welcomes Dr Nina Lager Vestberg, its new Visiting Research Fellow

The Institute is pleased to welcome Dr Nina Lager Vestberg from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, who will be a Visiting Research Fellow at IMCC from 13th-30th June.

Nina is an Associate Professor of Visual Culture at NTNU, and a Founding Member of the Visual Culture in Europe Network. She was educated in the UK, where she studied photography and multimedia at the University of Westminster (BA Hons), and history of art at Birkbeck College, London (MA and PhD). Nina has published articles on French photography and cultural memory, the indexicality of the photographic archive, and issues of copyright. Her current project investigates the cultural implications of the transformation of the photographic archive from an analogue, physical and visual environment to a digital, virtual and largely textual one. This will be the focus of her work during her stay in London, where she will be consulting primary sources in various London-based archives and collections of photographs.
