The History of Photography
Designed for learners of all ages. This online course is a nine-week survey of photography from its prehistory to the present. Course readings, lectures, and discussion will address photography’s multiple histories: as artistic medium, as social text, as technological adventure, and as cultural practice. We will view images made by important contributors to photography’s histories, as well as images that are important not only for those who made them, but also for their power within the discourses of mass culture. We will also learn about various technical processes, the camera’s evolution, and the vocabulary and issues of photographic theory and criticism.
