The issue is guest edited by DST/NRF SARChI Chair in Visual History & Theory Patricia Hayes and 2020 DST/NRF SARChI Postdoctoral Fellow in Visual History & Theory Iona Gilburt. Other Lives of the Image also features contributions by CHR Fellows Rui Assubuji and Samuel Longford. This special issue takes up the proposition that images have “Other Lives,” which are plural, distinct, multitemporal, and travel across media, manifesting in literature, cinema, sculpture, visual art, and media installations, among numerous other iterations. This volume arises from an international workshop held at the Centre for Humanities Research at UWC in October 2019.
