RENDER, in association with Carleton University’s Art History Graduate Students’ Society, is a student-run publication dedicated to the dissemination of ideas rooted in visual culture. Recognizing that academic work can often be an isolated process, it is the purpose of the journal to provide graduate students with an open forum to circulate their ideas to a wider audience.

The journal committee welcomes applications from graduate students at the MA and PhD levels, whose work is dedicated to visual culture—both contemporary and historic. Please see the ‘Selection Process’ below.
