NEW COURSE OFFERED PHOT 490K

Photographic and Political Representation
Winter 2011 Elective Course TTH 11-1:30 Bergen Hall

This interdisciplinary class examines the interplay between photography and politics and explores how the term “representation” is defined and mediated in each field. While photographs may appear to represent and mirror reality, they are in fact highly subjective and manipulated. Similarly, the ways social scientists think about the world are not exact replications of reality, but instead are models of it.

This course investigates representation at the intersection of photographic theory, documentary photography, pop culture, and politics.
Students will demonstrate and apply photographic methods and theories to the creation of a representational photo assignment. Prerequisite(s): PHOT 113.
Instructors: Dean Robert Eisinger and Professor Meryl Truett.
SPACES STILL AVAILABLE! Course my be credited as a Grad Elective with permission.
