AMCS 3785 - Photography In America

Description
This course will consider the practice and use of photography in America from its invention up to the present, offering various ways of thinking about the medium and its relation to society and culture. Students will come to understand the ways photographic practices shape public perceptions of national identity, ethnicity and gender, nature, democratic selves, and a host of other concerns. We will discuss famous practitioners such as Matthew Brady, Jacob Riis, Lewis Hine, Walker Evans, and Robert Frank. We consider not only the social and public uses of the medium through such episodes as the New Deal/FSA and photojournalism, but also the private explorations of 'fine art' photographers, and the everyday practices of the snapshot. Prereqs: Intro to Western (L01 112) or Intro to Modern (211), or one course in American History, American Cultural Studies, or permission of the instructor.
