Photography and Social Movements
CSPL 220
Spring 2015 not offered

Photography has long played an important role in social movements in the United States and elsewhere in the world. Recent critical discussion, moreover, has moved to analyze the efficacy of photographic representation in promoting and recording social change. This course will combine historical, visual, and critical texts to consider how photography has been deployed from the early 20th century on in connection with issues such as child labor, slum clearance, rural poverty, civil rights, antiwar protest, political reform, and the women's and gay rights movements. In attending to history, politics, and media, the course is intended to complement other aspects of the Center for the Study of Public Life.
