British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Conference: Diverse Migrations: Photography out of Bounds / Registration open

The consequences of the expansion of photographic practices around the globe are many and varied. Social interactions through and with analogue and digital photographs and the platforms across which photography is shared and disseminated keep challenging traditional socio-cultural boundaries. In its 2017 conference, Diverse Migrations: Photography out of Bounds, PHRC will explore how these processes affect peoples whose photographic histories are currently understudied.

Papers will consider this question in the context of African, Central American and Middle Eastern cultures, among many others, and in relation to themes such as:

  • transnational and/or emerging photographic practices
  • cross-cultural knowledge exchange through photography
  • migrations across media
  • sharing and exchanging photographs
  • global forums for photography and its theorisation

Diverse Migrations: Photography out of Bounds will therefore provide an opportunity to interrogate what social and other meaningful photographic practices emerge when photographs cross boundaries, and move between individuals, places, and distinct cultural environments.

Registration is now open.
