Event Description

The study of photographic history has often depended on interacting physically with materials - we learn a lot about prints, negatives, plates and equipment from handling them. But now much more of our life is online, and that’s likely to continue. So how do we adapt this subject to the restrictions of online learning - and what are the possible benefits and new opportunities of learning in the digital world?

We are delighted to welcome Professor Kelley Wilder to guide us through this renewed learning space. 

In this talk Kelley introduces some photographic materials and explores how we can interact with them in a meaningful way. She will invite us to consider how the digital world is changing what we learn about materials, and how we learn it. You are then welcome to take part in an open discussion, where she creates talking points, demonstrates a few things, and sets out some ambitions for a new world of learning. Come along and join in as much as you like; if you would like to sit back and listen, that is fine too!

Photo Histories are delivered in partnership with The Photographic Collections Network.
