AH 5610 - History of Photography

Approaches photography as a set of problems and concepts rather than as a unified medium with a linear history. Photography is marked by multiple, often contradictory practices at the nexus of differing discursive and contextual parameters. As a result, the main interest is not only with the photograph as an object of study, but as a modality of thinking and a way of producing new models of visibility. We will investigate the criteria used to identify and discuss photographic images and practices over the century and a half since the inception of processes resulting in photographic material. At the same time, we will ask after the ways in which photographic practices elucidate aspects of the historical context from which they are drawn.
