Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

MA Course: Photography: History, Theory, Practice / Sussex, starts September 2018

This is a new MA starting September 2018, subject to validation, from the University of Sussex, led by Dr Ben Burbridge. It will engage you in the challenging task of making sense of the multitude of photographic images that shape the world today. It is claimed to be the first MA in the UK to combine the history and theory of photography with practice and curation in a genuinely interdisciplinary context. You’ll explore the pivotal role of photography over the past two centuries across diverse global contexts – from the ways in which photography represents the complexities of 19th-century world views to the ubiquity and power of photography in our digital age. You’ll also develop your practical skills, working with expert practitioners and leading photography curators.

  • Learn from leading academics – in fields including Art History, English, Photography, Media, Film, History and Politics – and enjoy direct access to their cutting-edge work.
  • Benefit from our exceptional links with a range of the UK’s premier photography institutions – including Brighton Photo Biennial, Tate, the Victoria & Albert Museum, the photographic Archive of Modern Conflict and our partnership networks of museums and galleries across the South East.
  • Experience professional master classes by internationally recognised photographers and curators. You have the opportunity to take part in the programme of the Centre for Photography and Visual Culture, which attracts world-renowned artists, writers, filmmakers and curators.

Registrations are required by 1 August 2018 (International) / 1 September 2018 (UK)
