Reimagining Representation (PHO2113.01)

Terry Boddie
Photography was used for scientific purposes and a tool of imperial colonialization during the early years of its invention. These two things have helped shaped its history of representation of the body. Marginal groups of individuals when they were represented in photography were often presented in a stereotypical manner. This course will offer students an opportunity to confront this history but also to reimagine and reconstruct it through both text and images.
