Section Information for Fall 2021
This class surveys the history of photography beginning with its nineteenth century origins and continuing into the present. We will consider how the photograph has been alternately employed as a scientific document, an aesthetic object, and a mass cultural icon. Due attention will be given to the technical, historical and artistic contexts under which this distinctive medium has evolved over time. Students will develop their analytical and critical thinking skills through online discussions, essay exams and assignments.
ARTH 350 DL1 is a distance education section that meets asynchronously.
