Practices, Circulation and Legacies: Photographic Histories in Central and Eastern Europe

The third, 2018 installment of the Photographic Histories in Central and Eastern Europe conference series seeks to enhance understandings of the mechanisms and realities that have influenced the development of local photographic practices and their relationship with uses of photography elsewhere. It also aspires to expand knowledge about social and cultural customs that facilitated the circulation and legacies of photographs throughout the medium’s history in the region of Central and Eastern Europe. Papers will therefore address a range of interrelated topics, including but not limited to:

– The history and state of photographic collections/archives, the opportunities they present and the challenges they face

– The history and state of local research practices and academic discourses on photography (research topics, theory and methodology)

– The circulation of photographs and photographic images in public and private spheres and their impact on collective imaginations in Central and Eastern Europe (e.g. the uses of photography in art, media, politics…)
