New Course Supplement 2016


SPAN 65.08 War Pics: Photography in 19th Century Latin American Conflicts

This course focuses on the history and uses of photographic images in Latin America during armed conflicts in the 19th century. We will analyze the impact of photographic records during the American Civil War (Alexander Gardner), the Paraguayan War (George Bate), the War of Canudos (Victor Torres), the Argentinean “Conquest of the Desert” (Juan Pi), and the War of the Pacific. We will also explore the works on photography by Roland Barthes, Jacques Rancière, and Georges Didi-Huberman among others, as well as Latin American visual theorists such as Jens Andermann, Robert Levine, Beatriz González-Stephan, and Miguel Angel Cuarterolo.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
