Lieu : Toronto, School of Image Arts, Ryerson University, 122 Bond Street, third floor, room IMA-307

Date : 16 et 17 mars 2018

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.
