Event Description

Recent scholarly discourse on photographies has treated the subject of art and photography as a relic of the past. Has the aesthetic been delegitimized as a vital area of scholarly research? In this presentation Juliet Hacking and Joanne Lukitsh, editors of a recent anthology of essays on art and photography in the 19th century, make the case for revisiting the material and metaphorical interplay between photography and the arts, with “arts” encompassing a range of media from the visual culture of the time.
