This is a course with photography at its heart. Being in Pictures: An Intimate Photo Memoir is the title of the professor’s upcoming book of photographs, text and collages. Students’ projects will involve photography in combination with reading, writings, film viewing and critical thinking. We will explore a wide range of photographic works such as autobiographic, documentary, and journalistic, and consider photographic meaning through discussion of photographic contexts, makers, and audiences. Attention to women and gender will be aspects of written essays as well as visual projects. Students will learn some basics of digital photography and photo printing and may be able to digitally produce individual small books. Access to a digital camera for use in this class is required.
