This course surveys the history of photography from the invention of the medium in 1839 to its most recent developments. It is designed to introduce students to skills of analyzing and interpreting photographs as well as to present the history of photography as both an art form and as a social phenomenon. Since the meaning of a photograph changes depending on the methodology used to interpret it, this course will also introduce students to a number of different methods of visual analysis, including formal analysis, semiotics, psychoanalysis, and Marxism (as well as other forms of contextual analysis). In addition, the development of photographic theory will also be briefly examined. IV> 4
