Course Description

This course will demonstrate the diverse ways in which twentieth-century American photographers portrayed people. The photographers include, among others, Alfred Stieglitz, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Sally Mann, Diane Arbus, Nan Goldin, and Cindy Sherman. The course will grapple with three overarching questions: 1. How did the photographers’ aesthetics shape their portrayals? 2. How did race and gender make a difference? 3. How and why do we react to their photographs? The course is primarily discussion based, supplemented by the instructor's presentations. As “homework,” students will collect images on the Internet and bring copies to class.  Lecture (plus Questions) Facilitated Discussion Active Participation
