Photography: The Black Box of History

Keynote speakers: Ariella Azoulay and Elizabeth Edwards

The academic study of photography remains, some eighty years into its development, a nascent and unsettled scholarly enterprise.

This symposium will investigate how photography is conceptualized as a problem in history today, and how recent technological and epistemological transformations have engendered new approaches. Photography: The Black Box of History will bring together researchers whose methods and subjects exemplify new ways of thinking about photography that revisit history and encourage alternatives.

Friday, March 16–Saturday March 17
