Photographic History

This course focuses on the social, cultural and material histories of photography. Whether they were taken for the purpose of scholarly data collection, or simply to keep a private, visual record of an everyday camera user's life, photographs have been used as to describe or attest to social or cultural practices since the middle of the nineteenth century. With this in mind, using primary sources, such as negatives, photographs, manuscripts and digital technologies, you will investigate the role of photography in visual, social and cultural history, touching on wide ranging subjects in the history of science, anthropology, gender studies, museum studies, art history and area studies.
