ARH 390: Race, Photography, and America
Assignment from the Fall 2020 course - ARH 390: Race, Photography, and America.
Course Objectives: Our objectives for this course are: 1) to develop visual literacy with the complex processes and social functions of photographic images, and these images’
often-unstable status as objects: are they fine art or mass culture? Do they provoke discourse or provide documentation?; 2) to familiarize ourselves with key American photographers and subjects throughout history, and to place those figures within larger artistic and cultural movements; and 3) to further our critical reading, writing and speaking skills, specifically learning how to communicate about photography, and difficult or contentious issues and images.
