Photography: The Black Box of History
A symposium in partnership with the Ryerson Image Centre and the University of Delaware

Friday, March 16 – Saturday, March 17, 2018
School of Image Arts, Ryerson University
122 Bond Street, third floor, room IMA-307
Keynote speakers: Prof. Elizabeth Edwards and Dr. Tina Campt

The academic study of photography remains, some eighty years into its development, a nascent and unsettled scholarly enterprise. This symposium will investigate how photography is conceptualized as a problem in history today, and how recent technological and epistemological transformations have engendered new approaches. Photography: The Black Box of History will bring together researchers whose methods and subjects exemplify new ways of thinking about photography that revisit history and encourage alternatives.

Admission is free. No registration required. A complete schedule of events is available right here.

Icons and Activists: Images of Motherhood
What does motherhood look like? Long upheld as symbols of love and protection, how have images of mothers shaped social, political and cultural expectations of this responsibility? This talk by Sara Knelman, Assistant Professor in the School of Image Arts, will consider these questions using photographs in the RIC collection from the nineteenth century to the 1970s, including Dorothea Lange’s Migrant Mother and work by the British activist and feminist Jo Spence.

April 5, 12:00 pm
