Autobiography and Photography

FREN 257
Fall 2008 not offered
Course Cluster: Urban Studies

Over the last decades the question of autobiography as a genre has been thoroughly analyzed. The issue is further complicated by the use of photography within autobiographical texts, whether they are included in the text or merely described. In this course, we will examine the various roles of photography in autobiography. Is photography a way to trigger memory, is it more referential than the word, and how is the reader to read the coexistence of word and image? Such are some of the questions that will be discussed.
