ARHT 214 - PHOTOGRAPHY CONCEPTS AND HISTORIES
Everyday life is dominated by photographic images today, but what are the histories and cultural effects of this medium: how it works on us, how its interpretation differs over time and across cultures, how it has come to define how people understand and experience social life and personal identity? This course is an introduction to photography from a global historical perspective. We consider debates around different photographic genres such as portraiture, scientific photography, institutional biometrics, art photography, social documentary photography, and the economic and social implications of visual digitization. In the process, students develop a critical language to analyze photography in relation to its cultural, social, and institutional contexts.
