Event Description

Research seminar -History of Photography
Simon Baker (Curator of Photography, Tate): ‘Ruins: the Ruin of Ruins’: Photography in the ‘Red Zone’ and the Aftermath of the Great War

The History of Photography research seminar series aims to be a discursive platform for the discussion and dissemination of current research on photography. From art as photography and early photographic technology to ethnographic photographs and contemporary photography as art, the seminar welcomes contributions from researchers across the board, whether independent or affiliated with museums, galleries, archives, libraries or higher education, and endeavours to provide scholars with a challenging opportunity to present work in progress and test out new ideas.

The seminars usually take place once a term, on Wednesday evenings at 5.30pm in the Research Forum. The papers, and formal discussion, are followed by informal discussion over a glass of wine.

Seminars are free and open to all
