Description: This course introduces students to events in the history of American photography and photographic media, surveying artists and cultural trends across the span of the twentieth century. We will examine the various art movements and popular uses of photography in their historical contexts, while examining the influence of politics, economics, and social history – with close attention directed to categories of class, race, and gender. This course has two objectives; one, to familiarize students with principal photographers, modes, and movements, including identifiable visual styles and cultural impacts, and two, to enhance students’ visual literacy and critical reading skills as these are expressed in the history of photography and media studies.
