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 less for who made
them than 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.
Live portion of class will meet from 6:00-7:00pm using Zoom.
