ARTH 48.02 Histories of Photography

This course introduces students to the history of photography from its beginnings in the 1830s to the present day. In addition to studying key photographers and pivotal moments within the medium’s development as an art form, we also examine the ways that photography’s status as a seemingly transparent form of documentary knowledge has shaped our lived experience. Seminal theoretical texts will introduce students to the complex and rewarding task of visually analyzing photographs.

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.
