An interdisciplinary seminar that examines the role of photographic representation in archives of public and private memory. We examine the social and expressive functions of photography under the aegis of museums, libraries, art galleries, government, police, and personal albums. Critical theory includes discussions of gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, class, and nation as they help construct remembering.
