This course will survey the nature of photography, its practices, meanings, and visual results during a critical era of rapid development of the medium. The class will also explore the ways that contextual and cultural understandings have shaped the readings of images over the second half of the 20th century. Lectures and discussion will be supplemented with artifactual material from the collection of Professor Beck. In some semesters this course may be cross-listed at the undergraduate level as CAH 3240 and at the graduate level as CAH 6550. Additional work is required for graduate level credit.
