“Fotografía y discursos disciplinares” – Fotografía, política y representación: Re-enmarcar lo documental en las Américas

This colloquium is organized by Professor Magdalena Perkowska, Hunter College and the Graduate Center, and Ángeles Donoso Macaya, Borough of Manhattan Community College.

From the organizers: The aim of the “Photography and Disciplinary Discourses” Symposium is to critically consider the different discourses, approaches, and disciplines that surface vis-à-vis the photographic image. The 4th Symposium—the first to be held outside Chile—will reflect on the interdisciplinary potentialities of documentary photography as a political, cultural, social, economic and aesthetic device throughout Latino/a America, in the broadest hemispheric sense of the term.
