Description: This class examines the history of both artistic and non-artistic uses of photography from its origins in the nineteenth century, across the 20th century and into the present. In so doing we will pay close attention to a number of specific thematics, from the medium's conception in the late eighteenth century, through avant-garde and institutional debates in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries concerning photography's relationship to artistic and social issues, to questions of gender, race, class, and global politics.
