SART 17.09 The Photographer as Activist: Making Art Inspired by the Hood Museum's Collection

This course examines photography's evolving role as protagonist for raising awareness of important social and political issues of our time, such as war and its aftermath, the politics of gender and family, and the sustainable landscape.  Meetings in the Bernstein Study Center will focus on the study of specific photographs and the processes and techniques employed; these explorations will form the basis for individual photographic projects, culminating in a creative portfolio or book. Students will develop a critical framework for the cultivation of visual literacy and the understanding of photography's importance as witness to human experience.

Distributive and/or World Culture


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.
