Krystal Hauseur & Vanessa Schulman: Octopus: A Visual Studies Journal, Volume 4: Surface

Krystal Hauseur, Vanessa Schulman (Irvine, Visual Studies) Graduate

Octopus is an interdisciplinary journal edited and produced by the graduate students of the Ph.D. Program in Visual Studies at UC Irvine. The project is committed to communication between scholars working in disparate disciplines. It features the work of artists enrolled in MFA programs at UC schools, with scholarly commentary provided by a member of the journal’s editorial board. It also includes a series of interviews with prominent UC faculty, in order to interrogate the ways Visual Studies intersects with the work done in other branches of the system.
