U.S. Documentary Photography

This course examines U.S. documentary photographs as constructions of the past that articulate the social and political assumptions of their times. We will assess the impact of these photographs on their contemporary audiences and how they have shaped Americans’ collective memories of such events as the conquest of the West, mass immigration, the Great Depression, and 9/11.
