Talks: History and Theory of Photography Research Centre - spring term talks

Birkbeck's History and Theory of Photography Research Centre has announced its spring term talks which will be online. Established in 2012, the Centre is an interdisciplinary group based in Birkbeck's School of Arts, led by Dr Patrizia Di Bello and Professor Steve Edwards. We aim to facilitate, exchange and showcase new and existing research on photography's history and theory, both at Birkbeck and in the wider photographic and academic community.
