Writing the Histories of Photography – 1st Annual Graduate Student Symposium

How do we write the histories of photography today? What sort of topics, themes, objects, and methodologies should we foreground? What are the most pressing questions that our work suggests? This event showcases six new doctoral investigations to gauge the direction of our field across numerous disciplines. The presenters will share their work with an audience of peers and an official respondent, Prof. Steffen Siegel of the Folkwang Universität der Künste. The aim is to solicit a free exchange of ideas that will help nourish all our work and lead organically toward next year’s grad workshop.
